The Rocket Company would like to sell you their Complete Preaching System for $599.  In addition to the modular learning on the following subjects, you will get video coaching, audio coaching and written coaching. You will also get other materials?  Is it worth it?  For me, $599 is a lot of money and honestly, with as many small churches as there are in America, I don't understand where all the pastors are that buy these service.  I believe that with my shelf of books on preaching, I can cover most, if not all of the topics below, at a fraction of the cost.  I think that I can also get coaching from peers or others for less than $599.  What do you think? ed.
