Dr. Pablo J. Rivera Madera presents a unique guide for new preachers looking for inspiration for their first sermons with the publication of his new Spanish-language book, “Esgrimiendo la Palabra: Cultivando la mente y transformando el corazón a través de la predicación” (published by Trafford Publishing), which translates in English to “Wielding the Word: Cultivating mind and transforming the heart hrough preaching.”

Written in a concise manner, “Esgrimiendo la Palabra” equips readers with the tools needed to build a strong sermon that will stay with congregate members long after they’ve left the church. It also offers advice for delivering the sermon at the pulpit.

The book also includes some of Madera’s best sermons that he has used in Hispanic churches across the U.S. Madera, an ordained minister himself, wrote the book to help inexperienced preachers get started on their first sermons. He knows how difficult that first one can be, and he hopes his guide will generate ideas in readers and inspire them to preach God’s word.

An excerpt from “Esgrimiendo la Palabra”:

“Predicación es un ministerio de gran trascendencia en la Iglesia. La encomienda de la Iglesia es promover el Reino de Dios entre los seres humanos mediante la presentación responsable del mensaje de Jesucristo. Este mandato requiere diligencia, compromiso y profunda convicción.”
