About The Author

James Braga has been a missionary to China, a pastor and was for many years a professor at Multnomah School of the Bible.

James Braga maintains that every pastor should learn to formulate his own sermon outlines. This may be tedious work at first but after some time will find it easier to prepare bible messages for his congregation.

"No amount of knowledge or of learning or of natural endowments can take the place of a fervent, humble, devoted heart which longs for more and more of Christ."

James Braga underpins his book by the premise that the most important factor in the preparation of sermons is the preparation of the preacher's own heart. Note How To Study The Bible For Beginners.
