How sermons work.
Star rating: 4 stars
Professor David Murray from The Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary in Grand Rapids, Michigan provides a helpful and clear explanation of all that should be considered when preparing a sermon, in this short practical book. He examines the methods of preparation, discusses different preaching styles, looks at how to organise a sermon and considers how to apply the message of a particular passage.
The author says that this book is meant primarily for Bible college students, who are preparing for the ministry. However anyone who is called to teach the word of God in any capacity will find this book helpful. It will help in preparing both sermons or and Bible studies. In addition it could serve as a refresher for the more experienced preacher. Even those who do not preach might be interested to know how much work and consideration a preacher has to put into each sermon!
