Proclaiming Truth with Clarity and Relevance
If Donald Sunukjian writes something about preaching, I read it. He is a master at understanding how ideas work and how to develop them. If your messages have ever been less than crystal clear, read what he has to say.
Craig Brian Larson
Filled with examples, appended with helpful samples, and written in the vernacular of the people, Invitation to Biblical Preaching will take its rightful place among the homiletics textbooks of our classrooms and in the stacks of refreshing readings for experienced pastors.

Professor of Preaching
Lincoln Christian Seminary
Invitation to Biblical Preaching guides readers with proven principles stated in a fresh way. If every seasoned preacher will study this book and every novice take it as a primer, our pulpits would resound with a clear and authoritative, Here is what God is saying . . . to us.
E. Hermond Westmoreland Chair of Preaching
Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
Provides succinct instruction and numerous concrete examples. . . . The chapter on oral clarity is worth its weight in gold. I heartily recommend this book for serious students who wish to handle Gods Word well.

A practical guide to developing twenty-first century sermons that are biblically faithful, clear, and engaging. This is not ivory-tower theory; Invitation to Biblical Preaching offers down-to-earth insights and enough examples to spark dozens of great sermon ideas for any preacher!

Invitation to Biblical Preaching takes the reader step-by-step through the entire process of biblical preachingfrom biblical study to planning to delivery. Both current pastors and those training for the pulpit will especially appreciate the books original content, profuse examples, and clear instruction. Two complete sermons (one from the Old Testament and one from the New Testament) reinforce the texts principles.
