Rev. Kevin E. Martin

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Helpful for organzing  Jan 20, 2007
As a person just beginning preaching, I found this book especially helpful. One of the most helpful pieces of the book explained an organization system that would allow for me to make sermon notes - and then really find them later. (No random little slips of paper tucked in the Bible or hanging on the mirror!) A book well worth reading to help all preachers improve their preaching.
