Product Details

This comprehensive text book on the art of preaching illustrates how to craft a sermon. It covers every element of the process of creating a sermon and divides sermons into three classes: the topical sermon, in which the theme is especially prominent; the textual sermon, in which more regard is paid to the words of the text; and the expository sermon, in which, as a rule, a larger portion of the Bible is taken as the basis for the discourse.
