Best advice given to me about preaching: Preach to convince the mind, move the emotions, and activate the will. (Ben Durr, Homiletics Teacher)
Write your manuscript, but preach extemporaneously. If you must preach from a manuscript, write for the ear and not the eye. Most authors write for the eye -- Paul Harvey writes for the ear.
(Edsel Trouten, Substitute Homiletics Teacher)
People need fewer ought-to sermons and more how-to sermons. (Rick Warren, Pastor, Saddleback Community Church)

Preaching With Freshness - Bruce Mawhinney
7 Laws of the Learner - Bruce Wilkinson
Developing the Leader Within You - John Maxwell
Good to Great - Jim Collins

Something funny that happened while preaching: Nothing yet. Hopefully nothing will.
