Product Description

A pastor must be able to step with ease into a number of different speaking venues. In addition to a regular preaching schedule, a pastor faces an endless parade of special occasions as which you will be asked to speak. Some occasions are planned, others are unexpected, but for all occasions you must be ready to communicate the word of God in a way that complements the liturgy and worship.

The Preaching for Special Occasions series gives you practical guidance on how to develop and deliver clear, listener sensitive sermons for special occasions such as weddings, baptisms, and funerals. Each chapter examines the history and theology of preaching for a particular occasion and then centers on the development of the sermon for that event. Scott Gibson's approach to sermon construction is based on Haddon Robinson's central-idea preaching described in Biblical Preaching

Publisher's Description

Sooner or later, every pastor will be called on to conduct special services. Baptisms, weddings, funerals, infant presentations, and evangelistic services, each in their own way, challenge pastors to find the right words to mark the occasion.

Preaching for Special Services will help pastors prepare sermons for these special services. Each chapter explores a different occasion and offers the perspective, encouragement, and practical advice that pastors need as they plan their messages.

Through this useful book, pastors will discover how Christ-centered special occasion preaching can make a difference in the lives of their listeners.
