HotSermons is a work in progress, and we want to try and keep you up-to-date with what's new, so that you don't drive yourself nuts looking for it.
We want your experience with us to be as pleasant as possible, so we're going to make it easy for you find anything we've added recently.
HotSermons is getting regular traffic from over 180 countries around the world. That's great. I'm glad that there are so many people able to access it's resources. Here's what's available so far.
The Sermon Illustrations section is now complete. Yup, that means you can illustrate any of your sermons, provided your points don't start with Q or X! Not that I've ever heard a sermon on xylophones anyway.
Small Church Support. Most churches around the world are small and under-resourced. And the resources that are available to them are often too expensive to be of value. This section contains lots of things that I think you ought to know if you're in a small church.
Leadership Studies. This is all about leadership training. The first three modules are free. And if you like them, you can make an investment in your leadership ability or the abilities of other leaders in your church, by purchasing the other modules. That is, when I've completed them. It all takes time!
The For Men Only section is, as the title suggests geared for ministry to men. It's in here to help men become the best they can be. If you're a woman, you can read it too. We haven't set it up so that your computer will disintegrate when a woman accesses this section. Not yet, anyway.
Daily Bible Reading Planner. At this stage, this section contains a 52-week Bible Reading Planner. Each month has four levels, and there are two kinds of PDFs you can download. One is for personal use, and the other is for churches.
Communion Messages. Most of these were prepared by my awesome wife, Alli. She has a real gift for taking an age-old message, and approaching it from a new angle.
Recommended Reading. So far it's only Reference Works, but we'll be adding more.
Recommended Websites. Apart from HotSermons.Com, there are other great websites out there worth checking out.
Books and e-books. These are now available to purchase, although at this stage, the books are only available to Australian customers. My apologies to the rest of the world!
May, 2018: After a horrible false start using a dodgy template, we've overhauled the entire site. It should now be mobile friendly.
January, 2018: We've overhauled the Sermon Illustrations section. Most of the topics now have anecdotes and quotations clearly separated, and we've added a lot more illustrations too.
18th February, 2017: The beginning of a new series of sermon outlines on the Great Doctrines of the Bible.
