  • Skills of Oral Clarity

    Some of the advice Sunukjian gives: Use the same key phrases all the way through the message; In transitions, use a rhetorical question; If the sub points are a progression, develop them deductively.

  • Relevance

    Helping hearers find themselves in the biblical text, letting them see where the truth fits into their lives. Knowledge is not the goal of preaching, but the halfway point. Rummage through the lives of your listeners to find a picture of how the text can be best understood.

  • Skillful Uses of Induction and Deduction

    Scripture readings within the sermon should be given with a deductive synopsis. Generally sermons should be inductive to sustain attention.
