Preach or Perish: Reaching the hearts and minds of the world today was launched on 1 November 2008 by Archbishop Sir Marcus Loane. The book edited by Donald Howard has a twofold aim: to encourage preachers in their calling and to make readers value the dynamic relationship which should exist between pulpit and pew.

Preach or Perish was awarded 2nd Prize in the 2009 Australian Christian Book of the Year competition. The award is given by the Australian Christian Literature Society, an activity of the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge Australia Inc.

Copies of the book are available through Christian bookstores or by contacting Donald and Nan Howard on 0419 431 854.
