The Four Voices of Preaching

By Robert Stephen Reid

Published by Brazos Press

Good preaching results from more than having a well-written manuscript or outline. Reid says sermons can be delivered in one of four voices that reach listeners in four distinct modes—the teaching voice, the encouraging voice, the sage voice and the testifying voice.

Reid contends that preachers tend to generally adopt one of four possible ”voices” for their preaching: teaching, encouraging, sage, or testifying. He shows how these four voices differ, helps pastors understand which voice is typically theirs, and helps them sharpen the needed preaching skills. Sample sermons of each type of voice are included.
