I am currently working on a dissertation and would like to examine a standard Pentecostal/Charismatic preaching textbook. I am familiar with Reformed Charismatics, but would like to see the perspective of Pentecostal Charismatics. Can you help point me to a standard Pentecostal/Charismatic preaching textbook (preferably in Logos, but print works as well)? Thanks!

I hope that this will fill the bill.  Many Pentecostal/Charismatic's utilize Pathway Press quite a bit, such as Assemblies of God, Church of God (Cleveland TN).  I am sure there are others.  But I looked this up and Sound Scriptural Sermon Outlines 8 vol. by Wade Horton.  Hopefully this will help, unfortunately not in Logos yet.  It is a packaged offered in another program.

Hello Si,

I have a Pentecostal/Charismatic theology in "Study Notes on the Holy Scriptures" (2011 edition) published by Logos Bible Software. In the more recent 2016 edition posted on my website at, I am beginning developing the "theological framework" of books of the Bible. This framework is an outline that shapes the thematic scheme of the book. I offer complete "preaching outlines" using these thematic schemes for the books of Matthew, Galatians, and Judges in the introductions of these commentaries, and detailed literary structures in many other books. These outlines help to shape an expository sermon/teaching series that connects the passages with the overall theme of the book. In this way, the preacher/teacher can take his congregation/class on a journey with a clearly defined destination rather than hearing a "fragmented" sermon series.

I believe you are referring to a book on homiletics, but my commentary is attempting to bridge the gap between exegesis and homiletics so that the pastors can quickly identify the central idea of a sermon text. So, it may be of some help.

Bless you,
