On Preaching with H.B. Charles Jr.

Welcome to The On Preaching Podcast, the podcast dedicated to helping you preach faithfully, clearly, and better. 

In this episode, I want to talk to you about my complicated relationship with sermon manuscripts. At this point, I am a conflicted manuscript preacher. I write a full sermon manuscript each week. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, I have taken the manuscript to the pulpit. On one hand, I feel like preaching from a sermon manuscript is helping my preaching. At the same time, there are ways In which I feel the manuscript hinders my preaching. 

What is my current view of preaching from sermon manuscripts? 

  1. Biblical Accuracy
  2. Message Clarity 
  3. Balanced Preaching
  4. Sermon Length 
  5. Pulpit Liberty 
  6. Sermon Archives 
  7. Ministerial Development
