About-

Learning a new art requires a knowledge of the fundamentals, and the art of preaching is no exception. In Essentials for Biblical Preaching veteran homiletician Al Fasol covers every aspect the aspiring preacher needs to know.

“This volume introduces the preacher to the whole field of biblical preaching,” writes the author. “It takes the novitiate pulpiteer through an understanding of the nature of the preacher, to a grasp of the proclamation task, and on into the mystery of basic sermon preparation.” It can be used effectively on either the graduate or the undergraduate level.

After surveying the history of preaching, Fasol offers practical guidelines, peppered with examples, for preparing and delivering effective sermons. Topics include collecting sermon ideas, interpreting the biblical text, organizing the sermon, using illustrations, making applications, varying sermon methods, and employing communication principles.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“This helpful book is exactly as it claims to be—a basic introduction to most of the beginning lay or professional pulpiteer. As a simple, concise, and practical foundation, it provides an excellent introductory volume, effectively orienting would-be biblical preachers.”

—Craig P Skinner, Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary

“A masterful, practical, biblical perspective on the essentials of preaching. This book is born out of the author’s balanced ministry of classroom work and pulpit preaching. Beginning students will find here stepping stones toward the task of proclamation. Active pulpiteers will discover refreshment in the midst of weekly pressures of pulpit work. All of us have in this volume a new challenge to the most demanding task in the kingdom of God. I commend the volume without reservation."

—Joel Gregory, Travis Avenue Baptist Church
