This practical book supplies ministers, theological students, and laymen called upon to preach with a helpful tool for their ministries. Rather than being an attempt at a complete and exhaustive treatment of homiletics, it is a clearly outlined guide written in a conversational tone. It is useful for study, selection of sermon texts and themes, and sermon building.
Dr. William Evans has drawn upon extensive education and years of experience as a pastor, preacher, and Bible instructor to produce a guidebook that is personal and easily understood. After establishing definitions of terms under consideration, he examines the value of the personality of the preacher, the voice and interpretation of the text and theme, and the gathering and arranging of sermonic materials employed. He then gives close attention to the introduction, body, and conclusion; various types of sermons; and the use and abuse of illustrations. A concluding section contains sermon outlines which illustrate the material of the preceding pages.

Universal Life Church5 Stars Out Of 5May 20, 2009Universal Life ChurchThis is a well written reference for those who have gone through seminary school/college. It helps to be reminded of the basics so to fine tool pieces for Sunday morning. I highly recommend this book to those in seminary as well as those who have many years of Sunday mornings in the pulpit.
Travis Vaughan4 Stars Out Of 5March 25, 2001Travis VaughanIn this day and age distance learning is on the rise and many denominations now have leadership training available via correspondence. As one in preparation for ministry via this route, I found that preaching isn't always covered as thoroughly as theology, church government, and the like. I found this book to be of great help when I was introduced to preaching, and would highly recommend it as a primer for any layperson or elder called to preach. Having said that, I would add that it isn't a thorough treatment on homiletics, and the author makes that clear. For this reason alone I would suggest that anyone who is experienced in the pulpit make another selection.
