A Preacher’s Notes

I’m fairly interested in this new blog series that Josh Harris is running. Perhaps you’ll want to follow along too.

I’m often asked by other pastors what my notes look like, and I’m always curious to see how other men work. So over the next few weeks we’re going to do a series of posts that feature a brief introduction to a preacher and then a link to a PDF of the notes from one of his sermons. The PDF document will show exactly what that pastor carried into the pulpit when he preached his message. I think you’ll enjoy the diversity of styles. Some men do full manuscripts; others write out much less. Most type, one writes his sermons by hand. The goal is to show pastors the different ways that preachers work and hopefully encourage them in the preaching task. The men we’ve obtained manuscripts from so far include:

• Mark Dever • Mike Bullmore • C.J. Mahaney • Ray Ortlund, Jr. • Tim Keller

For more, read Josh’s original post here. Click on the “Mark Dever” link above for the first installment.
