The next book that I found to be immensely helpful in 2012 was a book about preaching by Charles Swindoll. I always enjoy reading books that are geared toward helping a man become a better preacher. This is a book that helps prevent one from preaching “long-horn” sermons. You may wonder what a “long-horn” sermon is and all who preach probably have to at least privately acknowledge they have been guilty of preaching a “long-horn” sermon a time or two. A “long-horn” sermon is one that has two points and a lot of bull in between.
