"You just have to trust me, and go right out and get this book. It's the most transformational book on the topic of preaching in, well, a long, long, time. You don't need any more "tips." You need a whole new way of looking at the work of preaching. One that makes sermon preparation a part of your prayer life instead of part of your to-do list. Backstory Preaching by Lisa Cressman does that."

—Rev. Dr. Micah T.J. Jackson, President of Bexley-Seabury Episcopal Seminary in Chicago

Backstory Preaching is having a great impact on my preaching. I can see the difference in my sermons.


No one graduates entirely ready for the pulpit—yet few resources exist to support preachers after Seminary.


That's why Backstory Preaching was created.
