Week after week, pastors write sermons and plan worship services in a limited amount of time. No matter what else comes up, time doesn’t stop—Sunday is coming. Being creative isn’t easy under any circumstances, and working within looming time constraints makes it even more difficult to write something fresh and engaging.
Why not let Logos help? The Study, Apply, Share series jumpstarts your sermon planning process, saving you time and energy. Each volume explores a book of the Bible passage by passage, addressing each passage from three angles:
- Study offers five to seven questions to help you think about the passage’s major interpretive issues as you craft your sermon. For example, James 1:2–8 includes the question, “Does the word ‘perfect’ in James 1:4 suggest the absence of sin?” Each question is accompanied by a link to a Logos resource that discusses the issue (The above question links to the New American Commentary: James by Kurt A. Richardson).
- Apply includes two different application ideas for each passage, categorized by theme. For example, Hebrews 1:5–14 includes applications for the topics of angels and fulfilled prophecy.
- Share includes professionally designed slides featuring statistical graphs that explore the book’s themes, ideas, and words and compare them to those of other biblical books. It also includes worship-service ideas that correspond to the application themes with practical ways to incorporate the themes into your Sunday service.
Each volume of the Study, Apply, Share series frees up your time, enabling you to minister to others without sacrificing the quality of your sermons and lessons. Pre-order the volumes today before the price goes up!
