Pastor and Logos user Mark Barnes blogs about his process for preparing a sermon. His five steps are nicely alliterated:
In his very helpful post, he shows how he makes use of Logos both in the dissecting and discovering steps. He uses the sentence diagramming tool to dissect the passage.
He also uses Logos to discover the meaning of the passage. In two very helpful videos (Logos Workspace [5:00] and Logos Workspace Options [4:59]), he shows you his workspace and how he puts it to use. I’d strongly encourage you to take the time to watch them both. They are full of excellent tips and tricks.
Not only does he lay out his process, but he also walks you through it with his sermon on Amos 2:4-16 and shares the final product in both PDF and audio. Be sure to check it out.
Very nice work, Mark. Thanks for sharing!
If you use Logos in your sermon prep and would like to share your process or workspace, drop a note in the comments. We’d love to see it.
