Gardner C. Taylor: Submissions to the Dean
J. Douglas Wiley and Ivan Douglas Hicks,

A winning tribute to a living legend many consider the greatest preacher in the English-speaking world.

Gardner C. Taylor: Submissions to the Dean is a profoundly poetic collection of essays and sermons from a who’s who of Christian leaders versed in African American tradition. From the very first essay, the reader is taken on a literary ride through a landscape that is beautifully painted with words. Each of the writers, being influenced by Gardner C. Taylor’s presence and work in their lives, has provided both a reflection and a sermon inspired by his mastery of the art of good preaching. This resource is a wonderful gift to a pastor or anyone in the ministry wanting to be informed, encouraged, and inspired by preaching at its best. To the layperson, it will be a lesson in inspiration. Dr. Taylor is widely considered to be one of the greatest preachers of all time. This tribute will give you a small glimpse of the reasons.
