THOUGHTS ON PREACHING
James W. Alexander

Few things are more helpful to preachers than the thoughts of a great preacher. In this volume we have such 'THOUGHTS ON PREACHING' from the illustrious pen of Dr. James W. Alexander. First published in 1864, a few years after his death, it contains sections from his private writings with their illuminating comments on the work of the ministry. In addition to his 166 paragraphs on preaching and pastoral ministry, this priceless volume includes his masterful Letters to Young Ministers which covers such subjects as:

DEVOTION TO THE WORK OF THE MINISTRY

THE CULTIVATION OF PERSONAL PIETY

THE HAPPINESS OF CHRIST'S MINISTRY

CLERICAL STUDIES

HOW TO FIND TIME FOR LEARNING

LEARNED PASTORS

EXTEMPORE PREACHING

DILIGENCE IN STUDY

and much more

In addtion Dr. Alexander concludes this classic volume with five lengthy essays on the following topics:

STUDIES AND DISCIPLINE OF THE PREACHER

THE MATTER OF PREACHING

EXPOSITORY PREACHING

THE PULPIT IN ANCIENT AND MODERN TIMES

ELOQUENCE OF THE FRENCH PULPIT

Of all the books that the publisher has read on the subject of preaching, there is none that has meant more than this one. It is much to be regretted that it has been out of print, and it is an honor to be able to bring it back once again with enlarged print for easier reading.

"Dr. J.W. Alexander's 'Thoughts on Preaching' is the best daily devotional on preaching ever written. To read a section or two of his poignant and savory thoughts contained in 'Homiletical Paragraphs' every day would greatly instruct, convict, encourage, and re-energize any true minister of the gospel. And his 'Letters to Young Ministers' is a masterpiece in itself; particularly the sections on maintaining devotion and happiness in the ministry." - Dr. Joel R. Beeke

"'Thoughts on Preaching' has impacted my verbal ministry, not only because Alexander relates proclamation so well to experiential Christianity, but especially because of his insistence upon preaching without notes. He encourages a more liberated, and apostolic style which I find most engaging. This is a work I have recommended numerous times. It is among my top picks for texts on preaching." - Jim Elliff, Christian Communicators Worldwide

" I am SO thankful that you are re-publishing this. I read it when I was first ordained to the ministry in 1979, and the sage advice that Alexander gives throughout still sticks with me. I still value his emphasis on preaching on the big themes. That advice and so much like it makes this book a jewel box of treasures for preachers and also for men preparing for the ministry." - Pastor Bill Shishko, OPC Franklin Square, NY

"There are very few books full of wholesome devotional thoughts for expository preachers. Alexander is one of them. Buy, read, meditate upon and use these precious gems. " - Dr. Mike Renihan, Pastor, Heritage Baptist Church, Worcester, MA
