CM153 Preparing and Delivering Christ-Centered Sermons III: Advanced Techniques and Theory

not enough ratings
In part three of his series on preaching, Dr. Bryan Chapell shares advanced techniques to help you in the pulpit. He starts with his battle-tested methods, explaining how to use voice and gesture and where to add transitions to create a natural flow. You’ll learn a variety of sermon preparation and delivery methods and how to develop your own style. Dr. Chapell then guides you away from the pulpit and into the pew. He explains the typical mindset of the different generations and common presuppositions that non-Christians and Christians bring with them on Sunday. You’ll discover how to approach sermon application based on who’s sitting in front of you and how to speak biblical truth in a way they will understand.
