8 Hours, or Less

I still can't fully believe it, but today marks the release of my first book "8 Hours, or Less." My wife and I literally had to look up what an adverb was last night, so I can't believe anyone let me write a book:) Thankfully the team at Moody Publishing was a huge help and I'm very proud of the end result. If you haven't had a chance to check it out yet, here's the description from the back of the book:

"The clock is every pastor’s nemesis. Between meetings, administration, counseling, and other duties, it’s hard to find enough time for sermon prep. 

Unless you change the process. 8 Hours Or Less will show preachers how to write the same sermons they’ve been writing, but in half the time. Author Ryan Huguley reveals:

  • The biggest time-wasters in sermon prep
  • The five marks of a faithful sermon
  • A day-by-day plan for writing sermons
  • Tips for preparing your mind, heart, and notes for preaching 
  • Common pitfalls in ending a sermon
  • And more

Huguley is a pastor and the host of a podcast featuring leaders like Matt Chandler, James MacDonald, Doug Wilson, and Nancy Ortberg. What he shares in 8 Hrs or Less is a process he’s been refining for six years, and it has radically improved both his preaching and experience in ministry.  

Why work harder when you can work smarter? 8 Hours or Less brings relief to the time crunch and helps pastors be healthier, more balanced, and more effective—all without making their sermons suffer for it."

I'd love to hear your thoughts after you've read the book! Pick up your copy on Amazon. I hope and pray it's helpful!
