Dr. Kent Spann and Dr. David Wheeler have collaborated to compile material from the works of 52 well known evangelical pastors and teachers, contemporary and classic, including Dr. Stuart Briscoe, Dr. Ed Dobson, Dr. Jack Hayford, Dr. David Jeremiah, and Dr. James Kennedy. "Nelson's Annual Preacher's Sourcebook" for the year 2010 is made up of new and classic sermons and outlines, worship aids, and music suggestions for services, for 52 weeks. The two alternate sermons or lesson ideas included each week provide material for extra services or Bible teaching occasions. Material is cross referenced by topic and scripture. Compelling illustrations, engaging illustrations, and highlights from "This Day in History" all add to the value of this outstanding resource. A software package and special service registry forms accompany the book. The event specific sermons and related resources provide new messages and material which will be especially helpful in providing freshness to your services throughout the new church year for occasions such as: Funerals, Candlelight Services, Child Dedication, Patriotic Services, The Lord's Supper, Baptism, Sanctity of Life, and Holidays. The organization of the sermons does not follow a common lectionary calendar but is a collection of independent key topical sermons and resources organized so they can be used in series to help develop a flow in preaching. "Nelson's Annual Preacher's Sourcebook" for the year 2010 continues the standard of excellence of the publisher in providing planning for purposeful worship programming for the full church year. Additional articles for pastors provide nourishment and encouragement for the pastor and cover thoughts on expository preaching, planning services, hospital visitation, ministering to the grieving, and a series on heroes of the faith. I was found the format to be user friendly and the material well organized. I especially appreciated the faithfulness to the scriptures and the meticulous attention to details in blending all the elements of praise and worship by exalting the name of Jesus Christ and the message of God's mercy, love, and grace as the underlying theme throughout the year.
