DESIGNING THE SERMON by James Earl Massey
Providing fundamental homiletical principles, this classic book gives readers all the tools they need to prepare a meaningful sermon. Dr. Massey's specific forms for designing sermons include the narrative/story sermon (a subject which is receiving renewed interest today); the textual-expository sermon; the doctrinal/topical sermon; and the special occasion sermon for which he has chosen the funeral. Suggestions are included for studying the methods of master preachers as a resource for more effective preaching. And three of the author's own tested sermons are used as illustrations of sermon design possibilities.
