The Preacher’s Portrait

Five New Testament Word Studies

£7.99

In this updated version of The Preacher’s Portrait John Stott presents a portrait of the ideal preacher; a portrait painted by the hand of God himself on the broad canvas of the New Testament. Through studying five roles of a preacher – steward, herald, witness, father, and servant – Stott illustrates God’s ideal for a preacher’s character, message and purpose.

Endorsements

John Stott’s The Preacher’s Portrait rates among the three or four most influential books in my life. Like all his writings, it is enriching and joy- generating because of the depth of his acquaintance with God’s word. It is also loaded with practical applications as it focuses on nurturing ministers who are above all men and women of God and of the Word.
