Nelson’s Annual Preacher’s Sourcebook

December 31, 2013

“Nelson’s Annual Preacher’s Sourcebook – Volume 3” edited by O.S. Hawkins is a collection of sermons by such contemporary preachers such as Danny Akin and J.D. Greear and past greats such as Adrian Rogers. There are also articles by the editor and Jim Henry.

There are many great messages and solid information in the sermons and articles. The sermons are presented as collections according to the author. For instance Mark Bailey’s sermons are in a collection entitled “Great Moments in Great Places,” and have such titles as “A Bedrock of Stone at the Base of Mt. Hermon.” There is an index of topics; however, I think it would also be useful to have some reference by Scripture texts or those cited.

There are other helpful items in the book including wedding planning and preparation articles and

I like the layout of the book and there is a CD also included which has the sermons and articles in RTF, so they are editable.

The back of the book includes as features “Worship helps, including hymns, prayers, and Scripture texts.” I did not see that in the book or the CD.

“Nelson’s Annual Preacher’s Sourcebook – Volume 3” is a useful collection of sermons and helpful information for research and edification. I would recommend it to the pastor, preacher, or other Bible teacher.
