New 2011 Gift Book/Ebook for Preachers

It’s that time of year again, and Preachers Institute is offering a very special offering this year for those of you who support our work. We have a very special book, and a VERY SPECIAL DEAL, for you this year.

Keep reading down to the PDF deal!

A venerable text on the formation of preachers, called (not surprisingly) “On The Formation Of Preachers” is now available through Preachers Institute.

This is a considerable text, loaded with Scriptural and Patristic quotes on the work, art, craft and science of preaching and the personal formation of those who preach. It was written by Humbert of Romans, the fifth master general of the Order of Preachers (Dominicans). Though Humbert was a post-Schism preacher in the west, his method and his understanding of the preacher and preaching is right in line with “On The Priesthood” by St. John Chrysostom, and “The Pastoral Rule” by St. Gregory the Great.

This is an exceptional text, and should be required reading for any Orthodox preacher or priest.

This paperback book is available through my publisher’s bookstore. If you are buying it as a gift use the coupon code: RUSH to get free ground shipping for Christmas. 🙂

The paperback version is $23.99. 

You can purchase the paperback version by going here: BUY PAPERBACK.

However, as a thank you to PI regulars, starting today, you can buy the Ebook for $6.99.


The paperback version is 205 pages, black and white, perfect bound and 6″ by 9″ in size.  Again, thank you for your support. Preachers Institute is about to undergo some major upgrades and changes in the coming weeks, and as you know, this is our only venue of support.
