This book includes over 300 sermon outlines from almost every book of the Bible, poems, jokes, and topical sermons by the Rev. Clarence Howell, whose ministerial work spanned some 75 years. These sermons are rich in content, Biblical truths, inspiration, and instruction. They may be used by preachers, pastors, evangelists, and Sunday School teachers for building a message on a particular topic, or a specific scripture passage. Many sermons for special days and holidays are in this treasury, including a wedding ceremony that he used over 850 times. This book may also be used as a daily devotional reading. God's word will have another opportunity to inspire hearts and win souls!
