  • #028: 7 Reasons Why I Write Sermon Manuscripts
  • 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.


    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


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