'Happy Valley' was the name given to the region of Kenya's Central Highlands where a community of affluent, hedonistic white expatriates settled between the wars. Including the writer Karen Blixen (Isak Dinesen), the pioneering aviator Beryl Markham and the troubled socialite Idina Sackville whose life was told in Frances Osborne's bestselling The Bolter, the Happy Valley set's notoriety was sealed in 1931 with the sensational - and still unsolved - murder of the Earl of Errol, the investigation of which laid bare the extent of the set's decadence and irresponsibility, and made for another bestselling book in James Fox's White Mischief. But what is left now? Juliet Barnes, who has lived in Kenya for many years, has set out to explore Happy Valley in a remarkable and indefatigable archaeological quest to find the homes and haunts of this extraordinary and vanished set of people - grand residences like Clouds up in the hills that once hosted opulent and scandalous parties. With the help of African guides, and guided by the memories of elderly expats she tracks down to the Muthiaga old enough to have first-hand memories of the likes of Idina and Lord Errol and the lives they led, what she finds - ruins reclaimed by luxuriant bush, tumbledown dwellings in which an African family ekes a subsistence living, or even a modest school - is a revelation of the state of modern Africa that makes the gilded era of the Happy Valley set seem even more fantastic. A book to set alongside such singular evocations of Africa and its strange colonial history as The Africa House, The Ghosts of Happy Valley: The Biography is a mesmerising blend of travel narrative, social history and personal quest.… (lisätietoja)

I preach about 50 messages every year—in addition to teaching a number of Bible studies. I've learned that the single most important way to grab someone's attention and connect is to tell a story. In an effort to become more effective, I picked up this book on preaching from a master story teller.

The strength of this book was the perception Miller has gained from years of preaching. Here are a few examples of his insight:

- "The textless sermon is a stammering talk by a prophet whose amnesia will not allow him to cherish the call" (101).

- I think God has never used a cookie cutter to mass-produce prophets" (180).

- "People don't want to know the truth you read (they can read for themselves). They want to know how you personally feel about the truth you read" (182).

My biggest frustration was the old bait-and-switch with the subtitle. I expected to glean insight from a seasoned story-teller. I expected a book on "Narrative Exposition." Instead, I read a text on sermon preparation that spoke about the importance of storytelling while sharing very little about how to actually tell a good story.

Overall, Miller's tone and quick sense of humour made this book an interesting read. I just wish he spent more time on the subtitle. ( )

Calvin Miller has definitely made a significant contribution to the field of expository preaching. It is a volume homileticians should read and take to heart. Whether the work will endure and become a staple in preacher's libraries such as Haddon Robinson's many volumes remains to be seen. For an enjoyable experience, this volume will provide many laughs, along with several daggers that can pierce the soul.
