Achtemeier, Elizabeth. Nature, God & Pulpit. Grand Rapids, Michigan: Eerdmans, 1992. A well-written homiletical corrective to the contemporary avoidance of God and the natural world. Helpful and suggestive.
Achtemeier, Elizabeth. Preaching from the Old Testament. Louisville, Kentucky: Westminster/John Knox, 1989. Most ministers have a much harder time dealing with the Old Testament than the New in their preaching. This volume offers a wonderful and practical guide to preaching narratives, Psalms, prophets, wisdom and law.
Achtemeier, Elizabeth. Preaching from the Minor Prophets. Grand Rapids, Michigan: Eerdmans, 1998. A great resource for pastors who wish to take the message of the prophets seriously in their regular preaching. Combines theological depth with clear, simple language.
*Adam, Peter. Speaking God’s Words: A Practical Theology of Expository Preaching. Downers Grove, Illinois: InterVarsity Press, 1999. Peter Adam, vicar of St. Jude’s, Carlton, in Melbourne, Australia, lays a solid theological foundation for preaching that insists on three great pillars: God has spoken, his words are recorded in Scripture, and he commissions people to “explain, preach and teach his written words to their contemporaries.” Highly recommended!

of Charles Haddon Spurgeon. Grand Rapids, Michigan: Baker, 1975. This wonderful little book seeks to isolate qualities in Spurgeon that we can apply to our own preaching. Sadly it seems to be out-of-print.
Adams, Jay E. Studies in Preaching: Audience Adaptations in the Sermons and Speeches of Paul. Grand Rapids, Michigan: Baker, 1976. The second volume in this series in which Adams seeks to isolate positive features that can help modern preachers.
Adams, Jay E. Studies in Preaching: The Homiletical Innovations of Andrew W. Blackwood. Grand Rapids, Michigan: Baker, 1975. The third and final volume in this series. The chapter on “Theory of Imagination” is worth the price of the book since most modern preachers know very little about the use of imagination.
Adams, Jay E. Preaching with Purpose: A Comprehensive Textbook on Biblical Preaching. Phillipsburg, New Jersey: Presbyterian & Reformed, 1982. Adams, best known for his counseling emphasis, was an excellent teacher of homiletics. This is a useful book.
