Say Something! is Now Available!
People looking for a church home value good preaching most of all – as shown by a recent Pew Research study. While tasty coffee, edgy technology, and flashy worship services are effective, if visitors don’t hear inspiring sermons they will not come back to your church. The lesson is clear: if you want to attract people to your church you must make preaching your number one priority. Now that’s a strategy for church growth! If great preaching is essential to church growth, how does one become a great preacher? This book will show you how.
In my book Say Something! Simple Ways to Make Your Sermons Matter (Abingdon Press) I share why so many sermons miss the mark – usually due to design issues, rather than poor content. This highly practical book covers 6 critical characteristics of effective sermons, how to capture the attention of the listener, the best method for having maximum impact with a sermon, and many other helpful ways to be an effective preacher.

“To say “that’ll preach” is to acknowledge the connection of a word, a story, an image with the nearness of God to us; the word has become flesh! Charley Reeb is an extraordinary preacher. In these pages he honors those who listen to sermons by exploring the logic of this connection between the Word of God and the worlds that we inhabit. Along the way he engages us in a conversation and models how we might connect with our congregations. These pages contain a wealth of practical wisdom for all who seek to preach more effectively and faithfully.”

“Charley Reeb is both an outstanding preacher and an engaged student of preaching. He thinks deeply about the craft of preaching, always beginning with the people for whom the sermon is prepared. Few books can help preachers more quickly improve their preaching than That’ll Preach.”

“Pastors have one of the most challenging communication tasks known to humankind: they must speak to essentially the same group of people about 50 times a year and not only hold their attention but make a difference in their lives. Charley Reeb’s new book That’ll Preach will be a welcome shot in the arm to preachers young and old. Reeb offers terrific insights for shaping and presenting sermons that grab the attention of listeners and make an impact in their lives. Whether you are a novice or a veteran, you’ll come away from this book with practical tools that can make your preaching more effective.”

“Charley Reeb has a heart so full of love for his Lord and for the proclamation of God’s word that it can’t help but overflow into your life. Surrounded all his life by a number of amazing ministry mentors, he has dedicated his life to practicing and promulgating the craft of powerful and effective preaching. If you are a pastor or communicator of any kind, here is a jewel of a book that I am certain will be a preaching touchstone for decades to come.”
