Preaching is both an art and a science. The good preacher has not only mastered the rules of hermeneutics and homiletics but has imagination, flair, and personality enough to make his sermons live.
This course will help you with the techniques of opening up a passage of Scripture. You will learn the basic principles of Bible interpretation. You will study ways of gathering message material, putting it together in a logical way, and presenting it well.
This course is designed primarily for those who feel called to preach. However, it can profitably be studied by all who have a desire to open up the Bible for the benefit of others. Most of the material in this course applies just as much to the teacher as to the preacher.

When God created the world He placed Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden and told them to multiply and fill the earth with people. Adam and Eve enjoyed a wonderful relationship with God until sin broke that relationship. Ever since then God has been reaching out to man in His grace. The Bible is the story of how He has been doing that. At the present time God is using His people to "make disciples of all nations."That’s missions! It is the most wonderful enterprise in the world.
In this study you will discover many aspects of world missions, beginning with its biblical foundation. You will learn what kind of people God uses and how He calls them to become involved; the Biblical strategy of missions and the special role of the church in fulfilling His plan. Methods, logistics, and the challenge of reaching people who are living in different cultural settings will be discussed. Then there will be a survey of the broad sweep of history as to how the gospel has spread since the time of Jesus. This will lead to a review of the contemporary world and the work that God is doing today.View full product details

What is evidence?
We usually think of evidence as information presented in a court of law to convince a judge or jury that a case is true and believable. Christian evidence is very similar—it's evidence which Christians can present in order to convince others that God, the Bible and Christianity are true, and that our faith is reasonable, logical and credible.
As you study this course, your personal faith will be strengthened, and you will learn to be "ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you" (1 Peter 3:15).View full product details
