    Matt, I’ve heard of the Schultz’s book but haven’t read it. You need to fix the link on, an error page is popping up. I had Keith Mask at Harding Grad for spiritual formation of adults and he loved Parker Palmer’s stuff. I haven’t had a chance to read it but will some day. I have an ambivalent feeling about Craddock. I love his preaching. I think as a public preacher he is fantastic. His books don’t seem to communicate to me (and maybe it’s me) a helpful process where I can imitate his approach. I see where he wants to go with homiletical theory but the pathway appears hazy to me. My favorite is Thomas Long’s “The Witness of Preaching.” Anyway, that’s my two cents. I’m glad you share links with us. The more the merrier.
