Format: Paperback
I remember in seminary when I had to take a preaching class. I stood before two Pastors, family and friends who "listened" to me preach. Afterwards, I was told I did well and made much of Jesus. I was also told areas of improvement based on the opinion of those who listened to my sermon. A few of my friends also watched the sermon online, and gave their thoughtful feedback and encouragement. Evaluating one's sermons can be nerve wracking. Did I preach just the Word or did I mix my opinion with the biblical text? Did I preach the point of the passage as the overall point of the sermon? Preaching can lead one to be incredibly introspective and lose sight of the goal of all true biblical teaching which is to make the point of the biblical text the point of the sermon and as the great preacher Charles Spurgeon once said, make a beeline to the Cross. While that advice has served me well whether I am speaking on an internet radio, podcast, to a group of men or behind a pulpit preaching and teaching, I've learned that evaluating one's sermon (and or allowing others to do so) can be a helpful exercise in humility. I was reminded of this experience as I read How To Evaluate Sermons by Joel R. Beeke. Before I get to the book, I find it ironic I am evaluating a book about evaluating sermons that itself evaluated me and challenged me. I wanted to point that out in case the irony of this was lost on my readers.

Joel Beeke is one of my favorite authors. I think I've read a dozen of his books and I truly enjoy the way he writes. One of the reasons for this is he really gets you thinking and evaluating your life in light of the Cross. In How to Evaluate Sermons, he walks through 1st Corinthians 3:5-15 thus assisting the preacher/teacher to see their utter need for Jesus.
