Critiquing a Sermon

Romans 10:14 - How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher?

In this lesson we simply want to listen to the message as the volunteer students deliver their mini-sermons through our live web class format.

Preaching in this format can be challenging for the preacher so an extra dose of grace will be required.

What to listen and look for in tonight’s mini-sermons

  • Is there a definite message that is important to the listener?
  • Was the message clear?
  • Was the message biblically grounded?
  • Did the message touch the heart or just the intellect?
  • Was the message delivered in an interesting way?
  • What was the main point of the sermon?
  • Was the message inspired by the Holy Spirit?

Study Questions:

  1. Which sermon touched your heart in tonight’s lesson and why.
  2. What did you enjoy about these volunteer sermons?
  3. Where you able to discern the difference between a topical, expository and type and shadow sermon? Please explain how each sermon met or failed to meet the criteria for a topical, expository or type and shadow sermon.
  4. What are your suggestions for improvement for each sermon given tonight?
