Preaching Reviews

'This reviewer [...] approached [this book] with caution, only to find his fears disarmed and his prejudices challenged [...] finding its results both surprising and enlightening.' Church Times, February 2009
"Leslie Francis and Andrew Village's book is valuable for experienced preachers wishing to revise their approach to hermeneutics and rethink their communication skills, as well as for theological students just beginning to develop an understanding of homiletical approaches to teaching sacred texts... Francis and Village turn a useful psychological diagnostic tool into a way of breathing spiritual depth and resonance into the teaching life of our churches." Reviewed by Jane Wallman-Girdlestone in Expository Times, September 2009.
Extract in Church Times, August 2008.
