The author has been in pastoral ministry for 21 years and this publication is his jubilee edition of some sermons that he has preached over the duration of his ministry.

Most of these sermons were preached in the Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa, New Zealand where the author now resides. The second most in South Africa, where he was born and where he served within the Dutch Reformed Church for many years. The least of these messages were preached in the Flemish speaking parts of Belgium where the author occasionally had the opportunity to address congregations.

The first section of the book is to encourage those in the ministry of preaching and teaching to be disciplined in not neglecting the important call and service to God and his people. The second part of the book consists of author's sermons, arranged according to English alphabets and divided into two categories: `Sermons for Feeding' and `Sermons for Fixing'.

This book is to motivate and confirm that preaching still matters especially in a post-Christendom context and the time spent preparing for doing that does indeed count for a lot.

Mario Weyers started with ordained pastoral ministry in the Dutch Reformed Church in South Africa, 20 years back. There, he pastored several churches and visited Flemish Belgium in regard to church planting projects in the Low Countries. At present, he ministers in the Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa, New Zealand.

Academically, he has completed a Masters and Doctorate in Missiology. His main area of research is Post Christendom and how the Church can move beyond this reality and even flourish in spite of its challenges.

His first published book, titled: `Belonging to the Church before believing in Christ' by Mediacom Education in Australia (2016) deals with the ongoing issue of membership and faith. Another of his recent publication is `Your Church is God's New Creation' published by Christian World Imprints.
