Product Description

"When we dare to tread in people's lives", notes Daniel Overdorf, ":we dare to tread in the footsteps of the Apostle's and prophets". This statement sets the tone in Applying the Sermon, perhaps the messiest, dirtiest part of sermon construction and delivery.

Exegesis is easy enough, research, judgment, interpretation are surely all both art and science. But application, application of a sermon's content means that you crawl under the skin of your parishioners, through their conscience, scouring their mind, and speak the word of God directly to them. To call it "difficult" sounds trite. Can it be done?

Publisher's Description

Despite the concern many pastors feel when it comes to sermon application, most homiletics texts devote little more than a chapter, if that, to this vital topic. Daniel Overdorf has filled this glaring gap with "Applying the Sermon." This book equips preachers to develop sermon application that grows from the biblical text and addresses the needs of contemporary congregations.
Each chapter includes snippets of interviews with five of today's most respected homileticians-Haddon Robinson, Will Willimon, Tom Long, Vic Pentz, and Bob Russell. A great addition to any pastoral library, and a valuable resource for Bible college and seminary courses, Overdorf's "Applying the Sermon" also includes an extensive bibliography and a sermon application worksheet to give pastors a chance to acquire hands-on experience with these techniques.
