Putting the Plot Back in Preaching

Aaron Perry


At their best, stories can create vision, inspire change, renew hope, break emotional walls, and nourish love. Plotted sermons, because they are stories, have this same dynamic potential.

In this work, Aaron walks the reader through the elements of good story-telling, and then offers a guided tour through preparing storied sermons from 4 genres of Scripture: narrative, epistle, wisdom, prophetic.
