This book is a manual for effective preaching and teaching of the Word of God. It is aimed at directing the users on how best to read and render the Word of God to people in a way and manner that they will not only hear it, but heed and hearken to it.

To achieve this objective within this book, the author proffers “the Authority of the Sacred Scriptures” and “the Power of the Holy Spirit” as the principles that render preaching and teaching of the Word of God most effective. These principles are divided into five factors (5-Ps) namely: the preacher, the preparation, the partakers, the preaching and the packaging of the message. When these principles are carefully practiced, our preaching and teaching of the Word of God will effectively result to the sanctification and salvation of souls.
