On PreachingI am a proponent of writing complete sermon manuscripts, whether you take it to the pulpit or not. Diligent study can result in flat sermons if you do not think through what you want to say and how you want to say it. It is not enough to have an outline and then basically wing it from there. Write yourself clear. – H.B. Charles Jr., On Preaching, p. 66
