We at Southeastern Seminary have an incredible preaching faculty, including Danny Akin, Jim Shaddix, Scott Pace, Dwayne Milioni and Ronjour Locke. Actually, while I had good preaching professors as a student, I’m jealous of our students who get to learn from these men (especially our doctoral students who get significant interaction with them). I asked them to give me some books on preaching they would want preachers to read, and here are their recommendations in no order of preference:
12 Recommended Books on Preaching
- Between Two Worlds by John Stott
- Preaching and Preachers by Martyn Lloyd-Jones
- The Supremacy of God in Preaching by John Piper
- Engaging Exposition by Daniel Akin, Bill Curtis and Stephen Rummage
