Danny Presswood is a southern Baptist pastor in Southwest, Missouri. He was called to preach at the age of fifteen in 1973. He went to college at Southwest Baptist University (college then) 1974-1978. He graduated from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity (Kansas City, Missouri) in 1987, and received their prestigious “Excellence in Preaching” award.
Pastor Danny is presently a student (inactive at the moment) at Trinity Seminary (Indiana) working on his D.Min. (Preaching and Pulpit Communication). He pastored churches in Missouri and Illinois from 1976-1988 when he entered the military. He then served as a US Army Chaplain from 1988-2000 when he was medically retired.
As you look through Pastor Danny's sermons, you will notice that they are formatted in the downloadable PDFs quite differently from the other sermons on HotSermons. Right throughout his messages, there are lots of words that are set out in bold fonts. This is quite different from what I am used to, so I asked him about it. This is what he said:
"The truth is, I spend a lot of time making them look that way because it enhances my preaching."
I hope his unique style of formatting helps you to preach better too. I can't argue with the fact that he has won such a prestigious award. However, on the webpage itself, the bold formatting is entirely absent. So if you don't like it, instead of downloading the PDF, just copy and paste directly from the webpage.
Here's what's available so far:
There are times when God sends thunder and lightning events into our lives STIR us into His kingdom! There are times when God sends great blessing events into our lives to LURE us into his kingdom! But there are also many times when God sends NOTHING except His still, small voice as He honors us with the FREEDOM to CHOOSE where we spend our eternity!
This is a fresh look at the Easter message from Luke 24:1-8. An overview of the events of the resurrection leads the listener to answer the question: “Jesus, did You REALLY do all this just for me?” Then the parishioner has the opportunity to say “Yes!” to Jesus.
