This is episode #028 of The On Preaching Podcast, the podcast dedicated to helping you preach faithfully, clearly, and better.

In this episode, we talk about seven reasons why I write sermon manuscripts.

Manuscript

Here are 7 reasons why I write sermon manuscripts:

  1. Write for Accuracy
  2. Write for Order
  3. Write for Clarity
  4. Write for Time
  5. Write for Audience
  6. Write for Memorization
  7. Write for Posterity

QUESTIONS

  • Do you write out your manuscripts? 
  • Why or why not? 
  • What do you take to the pulpit with you when you preach?
