In Cyclopedia of Sermons, one will find a collection of sermon outlines from the Old Testament, the New Testament, and other believers who preached the Gospel in times past. These sermon outlines are grouped into four loose categories:
- Christian Missions
- Types, Metaphors, and Parables of Christ
- Special Occasions
- Edification for Isolated Believers
Thought-provoking and helpful, these sermon outlines will benefit both preachers and laymen in their study and presentation of the Word of God. This volume was originally published in five small and distinct volumes, the content of all of which are comprised in this one volume.
