Praise for 300 Quotations for Preachers

"In choosing to draw on the deep well of the Christian history, Ritzema has collected wise words which will enrich your church life. Pastors and other leaders who plan Sunday worship will find these a rich resource, particularly if they already are using Logos as they prepare for Sundays."
