What I have found thus far is a much needed set of sermons. I recently figured out how you can copy and past from the book (I know...I'm new at this stuff) and wanted to share something with you below. I found this to be very challenging and helpful this morning. If you, my friend, are in any sort of leadership, I highly recommend this book to you. I am on the third chapter and the $.99 has been worth it already.
Below is an post from page 32 on the topic of dead orthodoxy (or knowing and preaching truth, but in such a way that it does not bring life, rather it brings death).
THE preaching that kills may be, and often is, orthodox—dogmatically, inviolably orthodox. We love orthodoxy. It is good. It is the best. It is the clean, clear-cut teaching of God’s Word, the trophies won by truth in its conflict with error, the levees which faith has raised against the desolating floods of honest or reckless misbelief or unbelief; but orthodoxy, clear and hard as crystal, suspicious and militant, may be but the letter well-shaped, well-named, and well-learned, the letter which kills. Nothing is so dead as a dead orthodoxy, too dead to speculate, too dead to think, to study, or to pray.
