Ben Witherington's New Book

Ben Witherington has a new book out featuring sermons of his based on 25 years of preaching. It also includes an essay on preaching by Ellsworth Kalas.

I've heard Ben Witherington preach at the Baptist Theological College in Sydney and he is quite good, he has a real pulpit presence, and he allows the text to dominate his sermon. The only thing better than hearing Ben Witherington preach is to hear him sing! He sounds like a cross between George W. Bush and Tom Jones.

I'm not sure that's really a resounding commendation. Personally, I'd rather hear rats dying than Bush singing. I sure hope Witherington preaches better than that!
