The History and Purpose of The Sermon Notebook

Today’s post was written by guest blogger Alan Carr, creator of The Sermon Notebook, which is currently only sale for 50% off. Learn more about it here.

Nearly 2,000 years ago, the Apostle Paul, in his words to Timothy, articulated the philosophy that brought The Sermon Notebook into being. Paul wrote, “And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.” (2 Timothy 2:2 KJV)

The Internet ministry of The Sermon Notebook began as a very small endeavor. In 1997, a friend suggested that I post a series of sermons I had prepared from the book of Revelation. I took his advice. When the initial response to the sermons was positive, and interest in my sermons grew, I developed The Sermon Notebook, and our ministry was born.

Since then, I have posted well over 1,100 sermons. Over the years, the ministry has grown beyond all of my expectations. The ministry of The Sermon Notebook is accessed by tens of thousands of visitors every day, and I regularly receive emails from every populated continent in the world. I am grateful to the Lord for how He has blessed this ministry and used our sermons since those humble beginnings years ago.
