Books on Preaching

I plan to begin soon reading through various books on preaching to help sharpen my preaching ability to hopefully be a better pastor for my church. With that being said, I would love to hear from you on your top 3-4 books on preaching. What are the absolute must reads? I know there are several good ones, but I am not enough of an avid reader to read them all. So, here are a few I have read or plan to read.

Preaching and Preachers by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

The Supremacy of God in Preaching by John Piper

Christ-Centered Preaching: Redeeming the Expository Sermon by Bryan Chapell

Any other suggestions for must reads?

Thanks, Brian. I'll check it out.

Here is a lecture that is helpful;

Couldn't get the link to work, Josh. Is that "Preaching Christ in a Postmodern World?"

Great recommendations all!
I personally like Faithful Preaching by Tony Merida. Covers all the nuts and bolts of preaching in an accessible way.

Two others:
Planning Your Preacing by Rummage (not really on exposition per se, but on how to construct expositional series)

Preach the Word (a series of short, helpful essays in honor of R. Kent Hughes by some well-known evangelical leaders).
