Just what you need to begin the journey to a sermon!

world. For each Sunday of the Christian year, Will provides just what
you need to begin the journey toward a sermon. This guide will stoke,
fund, and fuel your imagination while leaving plenty of room to insert
your own illustrations, make connections within your congregational
context, and speak the Word in your distinctive voice. Guidance from

asking, “What will you preach next Sunday?” Year A Part 1 is part of a

Will Willimon is a preacher and teacher of preachers. He is a United Methodist bishop (retired) and serves as Professor of the Practice of Christian Ministry and Director of the Doctor of Ministry program at Duke Divinity School, Durham, North Carolina. For twenty years he was Dean of the Chapel at Duke University. A 1996 Baylor University study named him among the Twelve Most Effective Preachers in the English speaking world.

His quarterly Pulpit Resource is used by thousands of pastors throughout North America, Canada, and Australia. In 2021 he gave the prestigious Lyman Beecher Lectures on Preaching at Yale Divinity School. Those lectures became the book, Preachers Dare: Speaking for God which is the inspiration for his ninetieth book, Listeners Dare: Hearing God in the Sermon.
