Homiletics is the science of
public speaking. Sermon Design and
Delivery zeroes in on the specific and practical details of a narrow arena
of public speaking—preaching. The author
posits firmly and unashamedly that preaching should be based on the Word of God
and filled with the same. The book moves from preparation of the speaker to
preparation of the sermon. Various chapters address how to start and end a
sermon, how to write an outline, preaching without notes, the use of visual
aids in preaching, earning the right to preach, and more. A classic book used
by preachers-to-be around the world.
This second edition is a beautiful hardback with an attractive dust jacket.
