Reviews - What do customers think about The Minister's Manual, 2004 Edition?

For Lectionary Preachers  Oct 8, 2007
This volume covers common lectionary texts for years C (Jan-Nov), and A (Dec). An excellent, easy to use, one volume "pump primer" for the pulpit/sanctuary.
The prayers are the best  May 17, 2001
As an elder who is called upon occassionally to conduct worship services, I have found this book to be very useful. The variations and thoughts in the prayers have helped me pray congregational prayers which reflect what is in my heart without being the same expressions as the last prayer. They also help to put into words what others may appreciate being said.

The sermons are what they propose to be...they are not theologically deep, are not denominational, and do not have many scriptural references other than the initial text. However, they provide excellent structure and outlines to which you can add, and make it your own. There are also helpful short anecdotes and stories to make interesting illustrations.

The Best Preacher's Helper Anywhere  Feb 1, 2001
As a lay preacher I have used a couple of different preacher's annuals for sermon inspiration and ideas, but this Minister's Manual by James Cox is by far the best one I've ever used. It has so much more than the others; in fact, I've been using it to plan entire worship services.

I like the topical sermons and the illustrations, and the organization is very easy to follow. I also like that James Cox's annual is hardcover rather than paperback, because it lays flat on my desk next to the computer. The other ones I've purchased are harder to use.

I highly recommend this preaching annual.

A wonderful handbook for every preacher or teacher.  Jan 8, 1999
This book contains a terific selection of complete sermon outlines plus illustrations. Any pastor, teacher, or music minister will find this this book helpful. Each sermon is complete with illustration, hymms and scripture readings. The sermons follow the revised lextionary. I highly recomend this book.
