One Year to Better Preaching: 52 Exercises to Hone Your Skills provides preachers with fifty-two hands-on exercises that sharpen their homiletic skills. The book, by author Daniel Overdorf, is designed particularly for those who preach each week - and have been, perhaps, for some time - to help them get out of the rut of the routine and infuse their preaching with new sparks of creativity, fresh approaches to sermon preparation and design and sharpened verbal and nonverbal communication skills. Novice preachers will also find the exercises useful in developing their preaching abilities.

Each chapter includes instructions for an exercise, tools and suggestions needed for the exercise, comments from preachers who completed it and recommended resources for further study. The exercises address eight categories of homiletics:

  • Prayer and preaching
  • Bible interpretation
  • Understanding listeners
  • Sermon construction
  • Illustrations and applications
  • Word crafting
  • The preaching event
  • Sermon evaluation

You can complete the exercises in the order presented, which address different categories week to week, or you can sharpen their skills in a particular category over a period of weeks by using the chart provided. You can even work through the exercises in collaboration with other preachers. One Year to Better Preaching will leave you reinvigorated as a preacher and better equipped to proclaim the Word of God skillfully, passionately and effectively.
