We received this endorsement of Morris Proctor’s The I-Beam of Message Building from best-selling author and pastor of The Donelson Fellowship in Nashville, TN, Robert J. Morgan. We just had to share it:
Being a good preacher is like being a NFL quarterback, only harder. On any given Sunday, a quarterback has to complete an efficient pass to an alert receiver. But a preacher has to first construct the football; then he has to deliver the thing to receivers who may not be paying attention (maybe because they’re thinking about the Big Game).I’ve been listening to preaching for 59 years and trying to do it for about 40 years; and on any given Sunday I’m likely to get shaken up on the play. But I do believe with all my heart that God’s Word is sufficient for every human need; and that it is best preached expositionally.Like all of us, I just need some occasional coaching.
I’m glad to recommend Moe to everyone who stands behind the pulpit, or who doesn’t use a pulpit at all. Whether we’re rookies or pros, whether we’re in robes, suits, or jeans, whether we’re traditional or contemporary, we can benefit from huddling with Moe long enough to learn about I-Beam. You and your church will be thankful, on any given Sunday.
Robert is spot on in his assessment of Morris’ ability to train and inspire anyone who shares God’s Word. It doesn’t matter if you are new to the pulpit or classroom or you are a seasoned veteran. There is something in The I-Beam of Message Building for everyone.
