This practical book supplies ministers and theological students, as well as laymen who are called upon to preach, with a helpful tool for their ministry. It is not an attempt at a complete and exhaustive treatment of homiletics but rather a clearly outlined guide for study, selection of sermon texts and themes, and sermon building.

How to Prepare Sermons has been written in a conversational tone which will give it wide possible usefulness. In its preparation, Dr. Evans has drawn upon his extensive education and priceless years of experience as a. pastor, preacher, and Bible instructor. The  material is personal, practical, and easily understood.

After establishing definitions of the terms under consideration, Dr. Evans examines the value of the personality of the preacher, the voice and interpretation of the text and theme, and the gathering and arranging of the sermonic materials employed. He then gives close attention to the introduction, body, and conclusion of the sermon, the various types of sermons, and the use and abuse of illustrations. The concluding section of the book contains sermon outlines which illustrate the material discussed in the preceding pages.
