This fourth volume of Outstanding Black Sermons brings together some of the best preachers in the pulpit today. These are millennium preachersmen and women who speak powerfully to this generation. Walter Thomas has brought together a collection of preachers ranging from those who have been on the national circuit for years and are familiar names to us all, to those rising stars who are in the morning of a glorious ministry. The messages shared by this diverse group of preachers seek to focus not on the eloquence and faith of the preachers themselves but on the gospel and teachings of Christ.
