Sermon Starter Guide

The Sermon Starter Guide kick-starts your lesson preparation process and makes researching for a sermon easy. It searches your Logos Library and gathers useful information as you prepare to preach or teach on a topic or biblical passage. By gathering everything your library has to offer into one location, the Sermon Starter Guide helps take your study from interpretation to application.

Build Better Sermons Faster

Find everything your library says on a topic

Preaching on a big topic? Enter a word like “Sin,” and a definition of the word will display along with lots of preaching resources, journals, and other sermons to help you dig deeper.

Browse related topics

If you need information related to your topic, Logos has you covered. For example, entering the topic “Sin” in the search field will display a list of related themes and topics like Fall of Man, Sinner, and Unforgivable Sin. Open one, and you can spend as little or as much time as you like learning how they relate to your main topic.

Read other sermons related to your topic

How have others preached about your topic? This section lists sermons relevant to your theme or passage.

Build an outline

Sometimes you just need to get a sermon outline started. The Thematic Outlines section gives you a great starting point for writing a sermon manuscript or lesson outline.
