I pre-oredered Mo's I-beam back in November and encouraged several others to.  Does this mean it is in the "near future" stage?  Would love to know.

I really wish I could find an online review of this product. Or even listen to some sermons by Morgan. I find it strange that it is difficult to find sermons by the authors some books or other types of instruction on preaching.

This product is brand new (still being developed; it's in pre-publication), so it will be unlikely you'll find an online review of it. Nobody outside the company has seen it yet. You might get lucky and find someone who has attended the live seminar and blogged about it.

However, this endorsement does sort of amount to an online review of it. Just to clarify, Robert Morgan isn't the teacher in this product. Morris Proctor is. Robert Morgan merely gave it his endorsement. However if you want to see some of Robert Morgan's speaking/preaching (as he was a mentor to Morris Proctor) you can do a search for Robert J. Morgan on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=robert+j+morgan&aq=f. You can do the same for Morris Proctor: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=morris+proctor&aq=f. However there don't appear to be any sermons by him on there. Videotaping sermons and putting them up on YouTube is a relatively recent phenomenon (how easy it is for us to forget how recent!) -- and Morris ("Moe") has been teaching software seminars predominantly rather than preaching for the past several years. He does still preach on occasion, but evidently none of those have been videotaped and put online.

You can see Morris talking about the I-Beam of Message Building in the sample video on the product description page: http://www.logos.com/product/8493/the-i-beam-of-message-building. I presume his speaking style is similar when he's preaching.

Mark,

Rosie is correct... Morris now teaches and instructs people full-time how to use Logos. However, he still loves to preach and frequently preaches around the country.

Here are a few sermons:

Please let me know if you have any other questions regarding the I-Beam.

Blessings,

In the video "My House Is Your House" dated to 09/12/10, I'm pretty sure you can see Sarah Palin singing in the choir: take a look at the left side (e.g. from 00:05:56 to 00:06:13). Not so sure I'd join this congregation ... Stick out tongue

That's not her Theolobias.  

Though I see nothing frightening about the fact that any political figure would go to church.  like their policies or not, I can't imagine them being in church would ever be a negative.

That was supposed to be a joke, Thomas. Smile I know it's not her - and though I can't stand what she stands for politically (as far as I can tell from my European angle ...), I'm sure I'd find a way to join the same congregation she does!

If you want to hear sermons by Robert J. Morgan, you can check out the church website where he pastors and listen to your heart's content:

http://www.donelson.org/sermons

Since Robert J. Morgan is my pastor and has asked me to preach on occasion, he actually sent me to Morris to help me "hone" my spiritual gift.  I had the privilege of having Morris watch a video of a sermon I preached, pointing out bad habits and areas needing improvement, as well as offering encouragement of strengths.  He then walked me through the principles and the practice of I-Beam and I took a copy home with me for more study and development.  It honestly was like he gathered together the pieces of scattered information I'd built up through my education, and pulled them together into a nice little package.

As for a review of I-Beam, I'm sure as the product is shipped more folks will blog / review it.  But since I've had some "up-close-and-personal" experience with it, I'll offer some thoughts. 

Even after earning a BA in Biblical Langauges & Bible and 45 credit hours+ of MDiv seminary courses (including homiletics), I can tell you the I-Beam offered me a powerful and practical resource.  It's formative, instructive, and corrective at the same time.  Morris draws from Biblical principles, his own experience, and from some of the best resources out there, and offers a "framework" to implement them in an extremely practical and usable manner.

For example, in homiletic courses, I read "Between Two Worlds" by Stott, "Expository Preaching" by Robinson, "Christ Centered Preaching" by Chapell, etc.  Morris draws principles from these and many other excellent sources.  However, I've always felt the lack of a cohesive method that would tie together what I've learned exegetically and homiletically.  All my education and reading lacked "glue"...until the I-Beam.  I've simply not experienced any other resource that takes the best exegetical and hermeneutic principles, pairs them up with homiletic and expository techniques, and wraps it all into a functional framework that keeps the preacher/teacher focused and "on point" throughout the preparation process.

From my perspective, after years of hearing and studying expository preaching, Morris offers a unique and extremely practical resource.  Young / new preachers will receive essential guidance.  Seasoned preachers will receive a tool / framework that forces them to refocus and correct bad habits or areas where they've strayed from true Biblical preaching.

If preachers / teachers give the I-Beam the time and attention it deserves, I have no doubt they'll see drastic improvements in their preaching/teaching.  A Sunday School lesson I taught two days ago utilized I-Beam principles and was much better for it!

That's not Sarah Palin, it's Tina Fey. Smile
