I bought the book, Preaching, to see what he had to say. He wrote it as a textbook. I haven't read the whole book yet, but what I have read so far is well-written, practical, common-sensical.

I bought the book, Preaching, to see what he had to say. It also has the virtue of being to-the-point. It is only 222 pages, and every page is well-planned and considered. If I were teaching a course in homiletics today, I would probably adopt this as the course textbook.

com User, April 2, 2007. Fred Craddock is a marvelous preacher. Having re-invented the preaching wheel in the 1970's and done so quite successfully, he turns his experience into a great book on "Preaching. This is the work of a master homiletician. Craddock's book has been on my shelf for years and there is not a week that goes by when I don't look something up in it.

Long, who followed Craddock as the Bandy Professor of Preaching at Candler, said that mainline Protestant preachers around the country have been affected by his style. Fred was in some ways an ironic presence because he neither looked nor sounded like the powerhouse he was; he was a short man with a high voice," Long said. But his words were absolutely compelling.

Fred Craddock was, perhaps, the best of the preachers and teachers of preachers of his generation. He died March 6, 2015 after a long and productive ministry.

I had the privilege to attend one of his classes, and it transformed my understanding of preaching. He had us read a short story each evening. During the class session, he would ask what we had read and what there was about it that pulled us in--kept us interested--caused us to want to continue. The answer was usually that the story kept us in suspense. He concluded that the old guidelines of "Tell them what you're going to tell them--and then tell them--and then tell them what you told them" was a prescription for boredom.

If I were teaching a course in homiletics today, I would probably adopt this as the course textbook. Anyone who aspires to learn to preach or to learn to preach better will be well-served by taking the time to read this book--to study it--to allow it to guide their understanding of preaching--and to use it to develop disciplines for improving their preaching.

This little book outlines a very careful design for strong, spiritual and scriptural sermons. It is not focused on the "academic" disciplines of homiletics or exegesis. It does not even get to the actual delivery of a sermon until the last chapter. I love his three assumptions at the beginning of this chapter: you have done the medical work to establish that you have the physical equipment to preach; you have done your vocal exercises just like a world class concert pianist still practices the scales; and you have actually read the scripture text.

The form and delivery of the sermon will grow naturally and organically from the preparation done before, long before, Sunday morning or Saturday night.

This book is a classic in its field, and perhaps because of that does not read like an academic text. Rather it models the thing it is talking about, a sermon, with a personal voice and an expectation that the preacher is engaged a spiritual experience. But don't be fooled: Craddock analyzes with insight the whole complex process of preparing, composing, and proclaiming good words for the people of God. He offers both strategic and tactical plans for those who have to do this every week. His advice about the composition process is very specific and practical. Worst thing I could say about the book is that occasionally he seems to be fighting old battles. Worth while.

I'm not big into using other people's lectionary guides when preparing sermons. Most of them are not worth the money. It seems to me that pastors who rely too heavily on such material cease to be be original and lack scholarship.

This series is not like that. The authors are among today's best preachers. They give direction and background, but do not offer "canned" sermons.

If you preach from the Revised Common Lectionary, this series WILL improve your preaching. Whatever you do, don't go any deeper into the year without purchasing this entire series.

Bonus hint: If you preach from the Revised Common Lectionary, look up textweek.com. This resource is also invaluable.

I placed an order for Preaching Through the Christian Year A but what I received was Preaching Through the Christian Year C. Just completed year cycle C so have little use for the year C book I received. Nothing is wrong with the book I was sent my dissatisfaction is with it being the wrong book.

There is a lot of great information in Craddock's preaching book, it still is a classic work on preaching. Some of the content appears to be a bit dated, but it is worth the read.

This is a good book when used as a text book for comparison to other styles and methods of Preaching. Craddock has used what has been successful in his experience to reach into mainstream, Western culture churches. I would recommend this book as 1 of several for practical application in public preaching. I was concerned with some of the methods used to grasp congregation attention, almost as if a performance is expected, however, a preacher who understands and knows their congregation will appreciate the reasoning Craddock uses to peak interest. For the student, this is a good book to have as one develops a preaching style of their own. It is tuned to an academic audience, so I would suggest keeping a dictionary handy, for some of the terms used. I liked it, but I would not recommend it as the only resource for Preaching.
I used this book in Intro to Preaching course, and found it one of the most difficult to read with big words and concepts that needed additional interpretations within themselves that distracted me from what the author was saying. One thing I can say is that it has a lot of relevant information to preaching. I'm not sure it teaches me how to preach though so if that's your goal, you may want to consider another book.
