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 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.

Medical emergencies that occur in public result in a 911 call if possible. If not, as when on an airplane, the question is asked, “Is there a doctor on board?” or “… in the house?” and so on. The prophet Jeremiah is weeping. “Is there no physician?” We, too, sometimes need to have a good cry and then discover the only balm that can heal the sin-sick soul.... more

Hi, your site is incredible. ... Keep up the great God-honoring relevant work you're doing.
A.D. 536 — the worst year to be alive in the northern hemisphere, according to research by a group of history and climate specialists. Yet, if we listen to the prophet Amos, we learn of other dire circumstances.
