Admit it. You thrive on preaching. Sure you get some fulfillment from other facets of ministry. But when it comes right down to it, you’ve been called to preach — and doing that well is what really pumps you up.
And equally important, you know that preaching can be life-changing for your listeners, especially when it’s the relevant, supercharged sort of preaching you strive for.
You are only too aware, of course, that that kind of preaching needs to be constantly fueled by material that pushes the boundaries and breaks with convention.
Homiletics Online is that kind of sermon preparation resource -- and for only $69.95 a year. Those looking for canned sermons should look elsewhere. It’s written for preachers who have their act together but who want yet more punch for their sermons — so that their preaching can bang through the disillusionment and disheartenment infecting those in the pews.
Sometimes Homiletics Online will make you laugh. Sometimes it will rip your heart out. Sometimes it will make you say, “Yes!” Sometimes it will make you say, “Hmmm.” Sometimes it will make you say, “Huh?” But always it will push you to articulate the gospel excellently in the life-vernacular of your people. Along with great ideas and metaphors, Homiletics also paints word-pictures for conveying the gospel to today’s audiences. You’ll draw people in with titles like, “The Naughty, the Nasty and the Nauseating,” “Red Bull Buzz” and “Engineering for Eternity.” And of course, Homiletics anchors the quest for truth in Scripture.
Yes, you thrive on preaching. Homiletics is a real companion in your weekly quest to make every sermon one that drives the gospel home in the hearts, minds and emotions of your people.

Stephen Sawyer’s painting “Undefeated” depicts Jesus as a boxer standing inside a boxing ring. In his corner, we find the word “Savior” printed on the protective padding of the corner post and hanging from the ropes are the boxing gloves with the word “mercy” written upon them. It’s an image that seems to fit hand in glove with today’s gospel reading. ... more
