Good Sermon Brother!

         "Good Sermon, Brother!" is intended to help anyone understand the Bible accurately by paying careful attention to interpretation.

         The volume is especially designed for the non-professional preacher and Bible teacher, but has application to all those who want to know what the Bible says.

          The book challenges the reader to identify what constitutes a good sermon and what makes for a bad sermon. It evaluates the relationship between the type and quality of interpretation and the validity of the message presented in sermons or Bible studies.

         A number of interpretation methods are evaluated and a thorough explanation is provided for how to

use a consistently reliable interpretation method. Good Bible interpretation answers the question about what the original author communicated to the original audience in the original setting. 

   The reader is guided through the interpretation process and becomes familiar with the Historical-Literal-Grammatical method.

       Upon completion of careful interpretation the reader is guided through the process of transitioning from pure interpretation to contemporary application of the Bible text that will be presented in a sermon/lesson. Discussion of of sermon outlines, transitions, illustrations, applications, introductions and conclusions are included.

      Readers are challenged to evaluate their personal reluctance toward preaching and encouraged to press forward. 

       Additional practical help is offered in appendices in forms for sermon evaluation, interpretation guides, exegetical examples and a sermon template.


        The book is available in English, French, and Swahili.
