What church leaders are saying about Preaching Killer Sermons:
Lane has written a very helpful, practical book for preachers and teach-ers. I think there are two great sins in preaching: misusing the text and boring your audience. In teaching pastors and seminary students, I find there are plenty of resources and attention given to avoid the first great sin. But there is a lack of resources on how not to bore people. And too many preachers feel that if they have rightly divided the Word of Truth, they have done everything God requires them to do. I think accuracy and effectiveness are equally important in preaching. Preaching Killer Sermons is a great resource to help pastors truly be effective in communicating the powerful truth of God’s Word. I plan to start using this with the preaching students I teach.

former Lead Pastor, Northridge Church, Rochester, NY
The hardest thing I do each week is not leadership development or pastoral care – it’s crafting a message which will communicate truth in an engaging and impactful way. I genuinely want to get better at what I believe is God’s greatest call on my life. I’m thankful for Lane’s heart to help us be better preachers. I’m thankful for this book.

Pastor Lane Sebring has done an outstanding job of reverse engineering the "great sermon." His efforts will help all who preach to preach better prepared sermons, and become better prepared communicators. Preach-ing Killer Sermons should be included reading in homiletics courses around the world.

The concepts Lane shares in this book have helped sharpen my effectiveness in communicating the content of God’s inerrant Word! I would highly recommend this book to both the novice and the experienced preacher.

I serve on a Teaching Team with Lane, so I watch him live out Preaching Killer Sermons each week. Lane’s heart is to communicate God’s Word in culturally relevant and engaging ways. Now he’s sharing his passion in a book full of practical tools to help preachers (and teachers/speakers). You’ll hear his heart as he challenges you to examine and refine your own preaching habits.
