Reading for Preaching
Wise preachers know that few things feed the preaching craft better than reading extensively. Novelists, poets, artists, journalists, and others can often capture in a single sentence or two astonishing insights into human life. What does anger look like? How does virtue elevate the human spirit? Here you will find quotes and vignettes that are the fruit of preachers who read widely and then record the gems of insight they find, all in the service of writing sermons that touch the human heart in fresh and vibrant ways. We keep adding quotes to this list; check back every so often for more.
