Invitation to PhilippiansThis six-volume series by veteran preacher and teacher of preachers provides a model of preaching using a combination of solid scholarly study, fidelity to the meaning and intent of the biblical author, oral clarity, contemporary relevance, humor, and creativity. “Pastors who plan on preaching through any of these biblical books,” says Sunukjian, “could be drawn to these sermons as models or as stimulating prompters for their own messages.”

Praise for the Series:

“Preaching is the rudder of the church; it provides direction, clarity, and the raw material the Holy Spirit uses to transform lives. Every honest pastor wants to become a more powerful and effective communicator and Sunukjian’s Models of Biblical Preaching series is one of the most effective tools I know. His coaching and example have had a significant role in shaping how I teach God’s Word today and I highly recommend his work to you.”
—Chip Ingram, Senior Pastor at Venture Christian Church; Teaching Pastor, Living on the Edge, an international teaching and discipleship ministry

“These model sermons remind us that exposition should be interesting, relevant, and at the same time thoroughly biblical. These messages should not just be read by pastors, but by anyone who wants their soul blessed by the transforming truth of the Scriptures.”
—Erwin W. Lutzer, Senior Pastor, The Moody Church
