David Jackman is the ideal person to write a book like this. David has been preaching and training preachers longer than many of us have been alive. He is a terrific encourager of preachers and his insights, observations and exhortations will provide great stimulus for your own thinking.
After graduating from Cambridge university, David Jackman worked for six years with the Universities and Colleges Christian Fellowship, followed by theological studies at Trinity College, Bristol and fifteen years of ministry at Above Bar Church, Southampton. In 1991 he became the founder-director of the Cornhill Training Course in London, a ministry of the Proclamation Trust, with whom he served for eighteen years, latterly as its President.
