The Five Foot Shelf: Preaching Resources



This is the first podcast in a periodic series we’re calling the “five foot shelf” series. In this episode we consider foundational book resources that every pastor/preacher should have on his (five-foot) shelf of resources. Dr. Pribbenow and Dr. Berge consider resources for the beginner, novice, and (still in need of a refresh) seasoned preacher.
