This site is about preparing and preaching sermons.

The purpose of Sermon Preparation is to enable pastors to fine-tune their sermon preparation
 and their preaching.

 "And he (Jesus) ordained twelve, that they should be with him,  and that he might send them
 forth to preach
.” (Mark 3:1)

 “Preach the Word...”
“I charge thee in the sight of God, and of Christ Jesus, who shall judge the living and the dead,
and by his appearing and his kingdom: Preach the word; be urgent in season, out of season;
reprove, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.
” (2 Timothy 4:1,2)

God is in the business of making himself known and making himself heard.
We can know God because God is making himself known.

The mystery is that He does it through preachers.
Humans are weak and prone to arrogance.
Yet, when the sermon is faithful to God's purposes, God works powerfully through
the imperfect instrument.
Preaching that proclaims God's word enables people to hear from God.
Nothing could be more important than preaching that Word.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon, said it well: "Life, death, hell, and worlds unknown,
hang on the preaching and the hearing of a sermon
."

Let us pray that God will make preaching the agent of transformation that He intended it to be.

"Get yourself up on a high mountain,
O Zion, bearer of good news,
Lift up your voice mightily,
O Jerusalem, bearer of good news;
Lift it up, do not fear.
Say to the cities of Judah,
'Here is your God
!'" (Isaiah 40:9)

When we preach, miracles of grace can take place!
Preach the Word!
Thanks for visiting and we hope that you will find this site helpful.

From Dr. White:
“Recently, I taught a seminary extension course in homiletics.
Our textbook was "Preparation and Delivery Of Sermons, “ authored by  Dr. John Broadus.
It was first published in 1870.  The latest revision was in 1926.
The book was out of print, but recently it has been published again.
John A. Broadus (1827-1895), the pre-eminent American Baptist of the 19th century,
a founder of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and professor of Greek and New Testament

This textbook has been the standard on which many books and studies on homiletics
has been based.
This web site will largely be based on this textbook.
Sermon Preparation has also taken advantage of many resources that can now be found
on the Internet.

I am still a learner, and I am indebted to those who have provided me with the
resources and inspiration throughout my life.
