Praise for the Print Edition

The clarity, simplicity, and power of Ramesh Richard’s seven-step approach to constructing sermons has well served students and pastors in many settings and nations. Now to have this most approachable method of sermon construction applied to evangelistic preaching is truly good news not only for pastors wanting ready assistance but also for lost souls needing eternal security.

Bryan Chapell, president, Covenant Theological Seminary

I believe this resource will strengthen your effectiveness as an evangelistic preacher and give you more boldness as you approach your task in the power of the Holy Spirit.

—Daniel Southern, president, American Tract Society

This book is not just a theoretical discussion of evangelistic preaching, but a practical book, filled with ideas all of us can use. I found it refreshing because the author so clearly communicates his own passion and first-hand experience in sharing the Good News.

—Erwin W. Lutzer, senior pastor, The Moody Church
