The preacher must not be a mere machine, an automaton; he must be a real man—a good man, and full of the Holy Spirit and of faith; and the effect of such a life and such preaching will be that much people will be added to the Lord (Acts 11:24).
This classic text on the preparation and delivery of sermons offers William Evans’ unique perspective on the theory and practice of sermon preparation. Here Evans focuses on methods, outlines, guides for study, the use of illustrations, and the selection of texts. This is the original version first published in 1913.
William Evans, Ph.D., D.D. (1870-1950) is best remembered as a noted American Bible teacher. Evans wrote over forty volumes on biblical interpretation and spent several years directing Bible conferences throughout Canada and the United States. Prior to being appointed the director of the Department of Bible at Moody Bible Institute, Evans was the pastor of various churches. In 1913 Evans also served as the associate dean of the Bible Institute in Los Angeles, California.
