This ethics of preaching text identifies vices of irresponsible preaching practices. Preachers who fail to develop deep respect for their listeners or drift into a lack faithfulness to the Gospel can end up becoming:

^A. The Pretender (The Problem of In-authenticity)
^A. The Egoist (The Problem of Self-absorption)
^A. The Manipulator (The Problem of Greediness)
^A. The Panderer (The Problem of Trendiness)
^A. The Crusader (The Problem of Exploitation)
^A. The Demagogue (The Problem of Self-righteousness)

Just as the church historically derived its Seven Holy Virtues (chastity, temperance, charity, diligence, patience, kindness, & humility) by naming Seven Deadly Sins (lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy, & pride), Reid and Hogan call preachers to turn away from pulpit vices and strive to realize the homiletic virtues of becoming:

^A. Authentic (The Call to Be Genuine)
^A. Altruistic (The Call to Be Selfless)
^A. Careful (The Call to Exercise Self-Control)
^A. Passionate (The Call to Be Honest to God)
^A. Courteous (The Call to Woo a Reasoned Reception)
^A. A ^aEUR~Namer' of God (The Call to Reveal an Ineffable God)

The Six Deadly Sins of Preaching explores the difference between the irresponsible practices, unfortunate missteps, and mere unthinking mistakes in preaching. A chapter is devoted to Preaching Missteps (problems that do not rise to the level of being irresponsible) that includes:

^A. Short Changing the Process
^A. Waving a Red Flag
^A. Thou Shall Not Bore the Congregation
^A. Through the Looking Glass Darkly
^A. The Mumbler
^A. TMI^aEUR"Too Much Information
^A. Your Cup Do Runneth Over
^A. Where's This Sermon Going, Anyway?
