Someday You'll Be a Good Preacher - by Stan Mast


I was given the opportunity to review this book thanks to Author Stan Mast and Bring It On Communications  .  Someday You'll Be a Good Preacher especially interested me due to the fact that my husband is an ordained minister.  We do not have a church right now but that may be in our future- God willing.  With that being said, any and all advice is welcomed by us. 

Quick Overview


You give a great sermon only to hear, “Someday you'll be a good preacher.” (ouch!) Becoming a good preacher is like traveling a winding mountain highway, where you're constantly surprised and sometimes terrified by new vistas and perspectives. In the words of Willie Nelson, you have to be willing to “get on the road again,” because it's a road worth traveling.

You can set your heels and simply do what is comfortable, or you can learn from your professional superiors, and yes, even from your strongest critics.

Aimed at those who want to become good preachers and their congregations who want that even more, this book covers many of the big issues in preaching, not as a “how to” book, but as a narrative that describes the journey of one working preacher and the lessons he's learned.

My Thoughts....

Stan Mast goes into great detail about what it means to be a minister.  I really like the personal stories he shares with his readers.  This book is an easy read and one that is quite enjoyable.  I would definitely recommend this book to any up and coming ministers.

My son is an ordained minister too.
I remember his first few sermons and how nervous I was for him. Well, he is a great preacher now, even teaches the subject at his local seminary. It is like anything else... practice makes perfect and mostley keeping in mind that God uses the word no matter how flawed me are.
