When it came time for Elizabeth Wright Anderson to walk her Bible study associates through how to study, interpret, apply and proclaim Scripture, she found there were no books on the process. So, seeing a gap in the market, she decided to write it.

In her new book, “Thoughtful Proclaimer: A Bottom-Up Guide to Preparing Bible Messages that Transform You From the Inside Out,” Wright Anderson gives lay preachers and teachers a way to find God’s main intentions for Bible passages and turn those into sermons and teachings.

The book also uses personal examination questions, examples, and humorous cartoons and stories to further educate readers throughout the process from beginning to end.

“Not everyone who is serious about preaching has the time or money to attend graduate seminary school,” Wright Anderson said. “This book is a spiritually enriching way for them to be able to uncover God’s main intentions in Bible passages and turn them into transformational sermons.”

In “Thoughtful Proclaimer” lay preachers and busy pastors can find spiritually enriching messages that will help their congregations and listeners apply those concepts directly to their lives and proclaim the word of God.
