Carl: Thanks for the helpful comment and I'll check out the resource you mentioned.
This is a very good article that I will pass on to my students. I do believe there should be one more component, however: "The big idea should be applicational in nature." (It ought to encourage an active response in the listener.) Of the five examples, 2-4 were applicational; 1 and 5 were truth statements. A very good resource for this is "Application in Biblical Preaching," a thesis by Brian Jones, written for Gordon-Conwell in 2003.
