Dr. Bryan Chapell, president of Covenant Theological Seminary, explores the unifying principle of grace that binds all Scripture together. He outlines and demonstrates the principles and practice of sermon crafting and delivery to illuminate the message of grace in each passage, and to submit it to God's Spirit for the transformation of lives through preaching.

Great resource!

I’m listening to these to augment my reading the Bryan’s book by the same title while in seminary. I appreciate his care to the calling of the preaching ministry and how to feed the flock with substantive messages.

Another reviewer complained about the use of male pronouns but since men are to hold the office of pastor in scripture it would be inappropriate to use female gendered pronouns. Bryan Chappell is not a post-modern liberal author - he’s a biblically orthodox teacher. 1 Timothy 2 makes it plain to understand. Only in our sin do we repeat the words of the serpent in the garden, “Did God really say...”


This is one of the best of the dozens of iTunes classes I have heard. It is immensely practical for any Christian public speaker including preacher, Bible study leader, or ministry leader.
Dr. Chapell gives step-by-step instruction on how to assemble and present an expository sermon (easily applicable to a Bible study or other presentation) including everything from how to formulate a life-changing theme from the text down to what to wear during the presentation. It is very hands-on without being overly constraining.
One problem is that he addresses expository preaching in such detail that he does not have time for other preaching styles such as Lowry's narrative style. I would love to hear Dr. Chapell provide similar detailed instruction for other styles.
I highly recommend following along in his textbook of the same name.

Very helpful

The lessons I have listened to have been pretty great. What I can’t get over is the male pronouns used for every example preacher. It sounds like there’s even women in the class. Let’s try to do better with our language and how it supports women in ministry.
