Learn More About the Adrian Rogers Legacy Collection

AdrianRogersQuote“We need for ministers of the Gospel to defend the Bible as the infallible Word of God; I believe in my heart that Adrian Rogers was such a man. I knew him personally. I had walked with him and prayed with him. I know God’s hand was upon Adrian Rogers as he proclaimed the Bread of Life from his church and through radio and television; I praise God for his ministry,” said Dr. Billy Graham.

Dr. Adrian Rogers was one of those “giants of the faith” and hardly needs an introduction. In 2005, Dr. Rogers went home to be with the Lord, but left behind a legacy of inspiring work that will serve ministers of the Gospel for many decades.

Wordsearch has partnered with Dr. Rogers’ foundation, the Pastor Training Institute, to bring you the Adrian Rogers Legacy Collection.

Guest Tip – Adrian Rogers & Seminary

Please note: The views & opinions expressed in any guest post featured on our site are those of the guest author and do not necessarily reflect the opinions & views of LifeWay Christian Resources.

One of my favorite Wordsearch resources (besides John G. Butler books!) is the Adrian Rogers Legacy Collection. This goldmine of sermons and illustrations from over the years of Dr. Adrian Rogers’ ministry is a must have for any pastor wishing to draw from one of the finest collections of sermons in digital format today.

However, the Adrian Rogers Legacy Collection is useful in other areas than just sermon preparation for pastors. As a seminary student, I frequently need to write seminary papers, exegetical papers, or engage in discussion groups where I am asked to explain or exegete a passage of Scripture.

While I certainly turn to all the “usual” academic resources when writing my school papers and discussions (such as academic-level dictionaries, exegetical commentaries, theological journals, etc.), I have found that also turning to the Adrian Rogers Legacy Collection gives me a wealth of exposition on a passage of Scripture, as well as some excellent quotes or illustrations to include in my papers and discussions to give them the extra “touch.” I treat the Adrian Rogers Legacy Collection as a giant “commentary” on the Bible that I search against passages of Scripture to see what Dr. Rogers’ insights contain on that passage. Here is how I do it:

Eight Biblical Reasons to Preach to People’s Minds

We seem to talk little about the role of the mind in discipleship. Serving? Yes. Caring? Yes. The fruit of the Spirit? Yes. But, the mind? We almost seem to fear the subject, except in the most generic sense. Posted by Pastors Today.

5 Great Things That Happen When Leaders Get Out of Their Offices

The pull to stay in your office can be strong. There are plenty of emails and plenty of meetings to keep leaders stuck in their offices. But wise leaders get out of their offices. Posted by Eric Geiger.

Free Friday! The Lay Preacher’s Guide

Free Book Friday for Bible Software

“Professors in our colleges do not understand it, therefore cannot teach it; students have to acquire it when actually at work, through much tribulation; preachers know every way better than the way direct to conscience and heart; Sunday-school teachers fail for want of ability to arrest and fix attention and arouse spiritual sympathy; parents make no study of the art of appeal, so that their religious influence is thin, furtive, shamefaced. Do skilled anglers use any bait that comes handiest? Do they fling the line into the water with an air that says, ‘There, bite or not as you like,’ as if the trout were certain to jump at our hook? If it will not bite, we blame the water, the time of day, the temperature, the rod, the fish, everything but the ill-adapted bait and the ignorant fisherman. We are fools and blind! Christ told the apostles they should ‘catch men alive,’ but He said, ‘Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.’ It takes supernatural wisdom to ‘catch’ the natural man.”

Happy Friday everyone! Today’s free download, usually $14.95, is The Lay Preachers Guide: A Handbook for Busy Preachers.
