LIM graduate and adjunct faculty member Dr. Deborah Wilhelm has authored a chapter in the new book Effective Preaching: Bringing People into an Encounter with God. The book grew out of presentations at the 2017 Marten Preaching Conference at Notre Dame. Her contribution is entitled "'Murder Your Darlings': How to Edit for Effective Preaching." The quotation in the title is a reference to the writing advice Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch delivered in a lecture at Cambridge University.
