The Certain Sound of The Trumpet: Crafting a Sermon of Authority – [Review]

There are many people who respect the work and ministry of Samuel D. Proctor. He has been noted as one of the most prolific teachers in preaching. During my last semester of Divinity school, my class read his book The Certain Sound of the Trumpet: Crafting a Sermon of Authority. If there is any book in all […]

Imagining A Sermon – [Review]

There are times when a preacher can find the task of crafting a sermon as inspiring as daring to write a book. With so many passages of scripture from which to pull a text from, you would think that it would be simple as one, two, three. However, preachers can be inspired in one moment and hit […]

The Homiletical Plot: The Sermon as a Narrative Art Form – [Review]

As a ministry student, I have the pleasure of reading a wide array of books that are designed to sharpen the skills of preachers. I know that when I first began ministry, I definitely could have used some sharpening to hone my speaking abilities. Despite having been a business major in high school and in undergrad, as well as […]

There is an old saying that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing again and again, expecting a different result. In the days following my watching the movie […]

Everyone Faces Their Own Form of Temptation

Recently I was driving my son to school and I was listening to a radio broadcast on a Christian radio station. I’ve listened to my share of pastors who speak on a wide array of topics, whether it is in traditional sermon or talk radio format. I believe that the one I happened to be […]

Whom Do You Relate To?

It was only a week ago that a message preached by a prominent pastor aired on a major Christian network. After it aired, media hounds took to the web, the airwaves, and every available social network possible to discredit this preacher by focusing their assault through a 40 second sound bite. Since that time, I’ve […]

The Resurrection in Retrospect

It’s the day after Easter, and many have made an end to their celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus the Christ. Many pastors no doubt preached an awesome word surrounding the events that led up to Jesus getting up on that early Sunday morning two thousand plus years ago. The amazing thing to me is […]

Vision Needs Details

I was sitting in a Sunday worship service recently where the minister preached a thought provoking message that echoed what our pastor has been preaching for a number of weeks. At the height of this sermon, he began to share very briefly, a story about a conversation he had with someone he always saw a […]
