A pastor must be able to step with ease into a number of different speaking venues. In addition to a regular preaching schedule, a pastor faces an endless parade of special occasions as which you will be asked to speak. Some occasions are planned, others are unexpected, but for all occasions you must be ready to communicate the word of God in a way that complements the liturgy and worship.
The Preaching for Special Occasions series gives you practical guidance on how to develop and deliver clear, listener sensitive sermons for special occasions such as weddings, baptisms, and funerals. Each chapter examines the history and theology of preaching for a particular occasion and then centers on the development of the sermon for that event. Scott Gibson's approach to sermon construction is based on Haddon Robinson's central-idea preaching described in Biblical Preaching
