The Bible is what God has made. Sermons are what we make with what God has made." This is the foundation for developing expository messages, according to Ramesh Richard. His method, explained in this book, has been field-tested in training seminars for thousands of pastors and preachers around the world, and it will be invaluable to you as well.
Preparing Expository Sermons is a simple do-it-yourself resource for developing and preaching expository sermons. It guides you through a seven-step process, with many practical suggestions and illustrative charts along the way. In addition, there are thirteen appendixes that include information on:
how to choose a text
understanding your audience
elements of a competent sermon outline
forms of sermon introduction
A comprehensive sermon evaluation questionnaire is included.
