Building a People for God
More and more pulpits are occupied by motivational speakers rather than preachers.
Church congregations are not being given a comprehensive, biblical understanding of the faith. Drawing on his own experience as a pastor in Zambia, Conrad Mbewe tackles issues such as the content of pastoral preaching, how pastoral preaching relates to church life, finding the time to prepare pastoral sermons, and dealing with discouragement. Throughout the book, it is clear that the author’s conviction is to see preachers grow strong churches, to build a people for God.
Conrad Mbewe is, in my judgment, one of the finest biblical preachers anywhere, known for his clarity, accuracy, thoroughness, courage, keen insight, and uncompromising faithfulness to the text of Scripture. This excellent book embodies all those qualities. It will fill a gaping void on the list of essential pastoral resources.

If all pastors and churches were to follow the teaching in this book, then surely the life of the church would grow in numbers and in the faith!

Pastoral Preaching is full of biblical insight to equip pastors for what must be one of the most crucial, and yet challenging, leadership callings in Africa today – the pastor in the local church. I heartily commend it to fellow labourers whose charge is to feed the Lord’s flock.
