Penned by one young preacher to others, all preachers will appreciate the wisdom of Reflections for the Call. Written as a devotional, the book uses practical truths and relevant Scriptures to help reconfirm the assignments of those in ministry. When read with fidelity, it will reignite the passion of not just young preachers but anyone with a public ministry call on their life. Listeners will find 30 timeless admonitions that every minister, especially young ministers, should embrace. Each devotion begins with a scriptural lesson and an easy-to-understand reflection on an important lesson for ministry. Each of the reflections includes sound exegesis of the scriptural reference and is completed with a prayer that the listener can use at that very moment. According to Dr. Marsha Brown Woodard of Palmer Theological Seminary, "These devotions...will speak to young preachers, and still be of benefit to more seasoned preachers as they seek to be faithful to God's call on their lives." There are plenty of preaching books, but few are designed with the young minister in mind. Kyle Boyer has written a work that combines theology and practicality to offer a great guidebook for anyone seeking to be faithful to their God-given assignments. 1. Language: English.

Engage your students with stories! Here’s the truth: If you don’t get people engaged with your message at the start, they’ll be distracted as your message moves along. With these stories, you’ll have exactly what you need to master the art of the start! These stories aren’t the “Everyone gather around while I tell you a story” kind of stories. And they aren’t the “Once upon a time” kind of stories either. These stories come from weird news, current events, and interesting moments in history. It’s so much fun when you connect them to the topics of your sermons! I know these stories will capture your students’ attention because I’ve used every one of them in sermons with my students. Out of the hundreds of stories I’ve used, these are the very best ones! And the best part? I’ve already done all the work for you. Each story is around 250 words (perfect to get your sermon started) and is written in a conversational style that will get your students interested and draw them into your message. Every. Single. Time. How do you use these stories in sermons? It’s easy an easy four-step process...• Step 1: Read the biblical passage that you’ll use for your sermon.• Step 2: Identify the main feeling, emotion, or thought that stands out to you.• Step 3: Listen to the stories in this book to see which one generates that same feeling, emotion, or thought for you.• Step 4: Use that story at the beginning of your sermon. If you’re ready to start capturing attention at the start of your sermons, the stories in this book will help you do it! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Trevor Hamaker.

Things were going along just fine.Until the miracle fouled them up.“Brother” Bob Bannister is content with his life and his itinerant healing ministry, until one night he finds that the woman who walks off the stage under her own power isn’t one of his shills. At that point, doubts begin to intrude on his previously untroubled existence.Dr. Abby Davis is tired of her family practice and at odds with God. Dealing with critically ill and dying patients has crushed her spirit to the point she’s ready to quit. But she soon realizes that there’s more to healing than ministering to the physical body.Scott Anderson was the oldest graduate of his seminary class. Then again, most of them hadn’t turned away from a medical practice, hoping to atone for past mistakes (including his wife’s death) by ministering to men’s souls. Now he hopes he hasn’t made a colossal mistake in switching careers. Each of these individuals becomes linked to the other, and each finds that God has a purpose for them - but, as it often does, the lesson comes with discomfort. 1. Language: English.
