The Supremacy of God in Preaching from Desiring God on Vimeo.
According to Warren Wiersbe, The Supremacy of God in Preaching "'calls us back to a biblical standard for preaching, a standard exemplified by many of the pulpit giants of the past, especially Jonathan Edwards and Charles Spurgeon." This newly revised edition is an essential guide for preachers who want to stir the embers of revival. Piper focuses his study on the example of Jonathan Edwards as an illustration of a leader who submitted to God.

“The Supremacy of God in Preaching is one of the few truly indispensable books on gospel ministry.”
- Phillip Graham Ryken, senior minister, Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia
“The Bible is not a book of practical suggestions on how to live a more well-adjusted life. The Bible is a revelation of God. The Supremacy of God in Preaching reminds preachers of what we easily forget to our peril and the peril of the people in our care.”
- Haddon Robinson, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
