New from Dr. Paul Cannings

  1. Big Idea Sermons: 52 Sermon Guides for Busy Pastors and Bible Teachers
    Big Idea Sermons: 52 Sermon Guides for Busy Pastors and Bible Teachers
    Paul Cannings
    B&H Books / 2018 / Trade Paperback
    $12.99 Retail: $16.99 Save 24% ($4.00)

The pastor’s life never goes as one would imagine it. The highs are much greater and heartfelt than you anticipate; the anxiety and stress are deeper and last longer than you expect. Add to this mix the possibility of working a full-time job in addition to pastoring, and you can see why a pastor's time is in such great demand.

Dr. Paul Cannings, once a young pastor himself, remembers the days of struggling to balance it all. Now he has written a helpful guidebook that provides everything a pastor or lay teacher needs to write an effective, moving, and biblically sound sermon for each of the fifty-two weeks in the year. In Big Idea Sermons, Dr. Cannings clearly lays out the key components of a good sermon by including sermon outlines, series, background information, illustrations, holiday messages for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Mother's and Father's Day, and more. He also includes references to the Hebrew and Greek texts for further validation. By working with the original languages, Dr. Cannings proclaims the gospel in a clear, engaging, and trustworthy manner.

Pastors, preachers, lay teachers, and anyone in a position to preach a sermon or teach a lesson: Big Idea Sermons is here to help. Be sure to read, meditate, and pray so you may use this resource wisely and effectively.

Experience abundant life with Abingdon's 2018 VBS 24/7: Jesus Makes a Way Every Day! Jesus told stories of how God provides every hour of every day so that we might have life and live it to the fullest. Children, youth, and adults have fun discovering that abundant life is based on a strong faith foundation, sharing in community, seeking justice, persistent prayer, and the forgiveness and love of Jesus Christ.
