Introducing 1,500 Quotations for Preachers

I have always enjoyed collections of inspiring quotations, but finding the right quotation is not always easy. Whether I’m looking for something relating to a topic or a to Bible passage, I often find that I miss good content because I’m not sure where to look. I attempted to solve that problem a few months ago with 300 Quotations for Preachers, which categorizes quotations by multiple themes and Scripture references, making them easier to find. The book also updates archaic language to make quotations easier to use in a modern context, and features excerpts of each quotation on an accompanying slide.

There was such a positive response to 300 Quotations that we have now undertaken a more ambitious project: 1,500 Quotations for Preachers. It does the same work of selection and categorization as the earlier book, but on a larger scale and with even more categories. This is new content; none of the quotations from the earlier book are repeated.

1,500 Quotations for Preachers features five books of quotations from different eras of church history—this is our additional level of categorization:

  • The Early Church
  • The Medieval Church
  • The Reformation
  • The Puritans
  • The Modern Church

With Logos 5, these quotations are integrated into the Sermon Starter Guide. It’s easy to find a relevant quote, whether you’re looking for information on a passage or on a topic. This integration can be seen already with 300 Quotations for Preachers and its companion volume, 400 Prayers for Preachers. I searched “resurrection” in the Sermon Starter Guide and found quotes and prayers on that topic:

resurrection

If I click on the first item under 300 Quotations, I get this quote from influential French mathematician and philosopher Blaise Pascal (1623–1662), along with a slide that makes it easy to share:

PascalIt would be impossible to find this quote by searching my library for “resurrection”—even though resurrection is the subject, Pascal doesn’t use that word. Sending the slide to PowerPoint or Proclaim allows me to view it at a larger size and incorporate it right into my sermon slides:

With 1,500 of the best quotations selected from almost 2,000 years of church history, you will have even more quotations to choose from and share. Pre-order 1,500 Quotations for Preachers today!

    Question: I don’t see “preaching resources” in my sermon starter guide. Is that something I have to purchase separately?

      Hey Justin! I noiced that very same thing – there are actually a couple of steps you can take to easily add this collection to your search library (specifically your Sermon Starter Guide).

      In your Guide, you’ll see a list called “COLLECTIONS.” If you hover over that title, click the SETTINGS dropdown and search for “1,500…” It should come right up and now whenever you use your SSG, you’ll have your library search the list of quotations for specific themes that the quotes have been assigned.

    I meant you should type “Pastorum” under COLLECTIONS settings.
    I apologize!
