Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

This practical book supplies ministers, theological students, and laymen called upon to preach with a helpful tool for their ministries. Rather than being an attempt at a complete and exhaustive treatment of homiletics, it is a clearly outlined guide, written in a conversational tone, for study, selection of sermon texts and themes, and sermon building.

Dr. William Evans has drawn upon extensive education and years of experience as a pastor, preacher, and Bible instructor to produce a guidebook that is personal and easily understood. After establishing definitions of terms under consideration, he examines the value of the personality of the preacher, the voice and interpretation of the text and theme, and the gathering and arranging of sermonic materials employed. He then gives close attention to the introduction, body, and conclusion, various types of sermons, and the use and abuse of illustrations. A concluding section contains sermon outlines which illustrate the material of the preceding pages.

About the Author

WILLIAM EVANS, (1870-1950) a noted American Bible teacher, was born in Liverpool, England, in 1870. Following several years in various pastorates, he was appointed director of the Department of Bible at the Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, Illinois. Evans devoted his life to directing Bible conferences throughout the United States and Canada, and was the author of more than forty volumes on biblical interpretation including Great Doctrines of the Bible and How to Prepare Sermons.

Mr. Evans has done a great job of placing a lot of material in a small amount of space. His concise way of sharing on the subject of HOMILETICS is exactly what the beginner needs. That is not to say that a seasoned minister cannot benefit from this book. On the contrary, I have been preaching for over 20 years and I found his common sense approach refreshing. It never hurts to go over this stuff again. A quick read.

William Evans approach to sermon writing is traditional, sobering and spiritually educational. The book takes one through clear, concise and biblical challenging steps on preparing sermon outlines and the book is an easy read and the attention span remains on alert. For the serious minister/preacher...

"How to Prepare Sermons" by William Evans is a great book for anyone who is new to the profession of being a pastor or Bible study instructor. This book outlines the steps and procedures in preparing effective sermons so that the speaker supports his presentation with Scriptural truth and the audience is captivated through the saving message of the Gospel truths. I recommend this book to all who are seriously interested in improving their involvement with the church through leadership roles.

If you ever need to write a sermon either lay or professional, this is an exceptional handy manual. It has good references and takes one through the process in an organized, easily understood manner!

This book contains a complete nuts and bolts approach to preparing sermons. It shows how to structure the sermon, beginning, middle and end, and allows you to mould your subject matter into a format that will be readily understood and assimilated by the recipients. I am using this along with other books with different perspectives on the same subject, allowing me to tackle the preparation and delivery of a sermon with the best content, structure and delivery, starting as a novice. I recommend this as a primer for preparing sermons.

This is a very good resource book. It helped me to understand that after I have read about the culture and customs of biblical times, it really is my responsibility to somehow, make it relevant to my own culture and audience. Also, I must take the time to fully understand the text, in order to be able to bring it home, to whom I am speaking. Otherwise, I may not hit home for many of the people. Again, it is my job to grasp and hold the interest of my audience, in preaching the message from the text.
