Equipped Course Unit 13: Sing to the Theme Tune
The theme sentence of a sermon summarises the core content or idea of the text—what must be preached from the text—in faithfulness to its original meaning. Extend that to the whole book, or section of a book, and you have the theme tune—the central idea that governs and generates the whole entity.

This course aims to help train up a new generation of faithful and effective Bible preachers by acquiring and developing the necessary practical tools and skills to expound the Bible's message. This includes both the preparation of the text and the presentation of the preaching, so as to connect that message to our contemporary cultures. The course seeks also to motivate the preacher to progress and perseverance, through spiritual encouragement, not only to be a skilled workman, but also to be maturing as a humble servant, whom God can use.
