Pastor Bisagno has been using this method for nearly 50 years. Now he shows you how to "state, explain, apply, and illustrate" biblical precepts---creating life applications that your congregation can put into practice right now. Includes more than 40 sermons on characters including Adam and Eve, Noah, Mary and Joseph, Peter, and Pilate. 208 pages, softcover from B&H.
Principle Preaching, preaching life-changing principle-based sermons, is the style of preaching that John Bisagno, recently retired pastor, has been using for nearly fifty years in ministry. Principle preaching takes biblical principles and makes life applications by infusing these principles into the narrative preached. As a result, hearers of your sermons, instead of having three or four judiciously made sermon points, have life application principles they can put into practice in their daily life--immediately.
