A short list of the sermon prep tools I love and use each week.
  1. My Bible
    3891443d 6b7b 4539 bed3 5657537f54c2
    I currently prep and preach from a calfskin ESV New Classic Reference Edition. http://www.wtsbooks.com/esv-new-classic-reference-bible-english-standard-version-esv-9781433524714-2
  2. A Notebook
    E6d95df5 e311 439e 8732 c84782ceade2
    I switch this up frequently, but love moleskines. http://www.moleskine.com/us/
  3. MacBook Air
    Ee78b182 40cd 4eee 8d11 f4dae295aa64
    I have an 11-inch and its my favorite computer I've ever owned. http://www.apple.com/macbook-air/
  4. Sharpie Pens
    7754744c 829d 4d4c 9c2f b51fd4f3f28d
    My friend @JoeThorn got me hooked on the fine tips. I use both red and black. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001B66DXU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awd_ByDxwbPRB5PWQ
  5. Evernote
    0c610a5a a3b2 4900 b6e7 c29767823db4
    I have a folder for each series and a note for each sermon within that folder. It gives me the ability to keep everything in one place and to be able to add thoughts from my phone when I'm not at my computer. If you're a preacher and not using Evernote, you should really consider it. https://evernote.com
  6. Logos
    92c8d1fa 4340 4acc afa4 05f32b156e6b
    Logos is a Bible study app that makes all my commentary, lexicons, dictionaries, etc searchable. Saved hours in research and thousands of $ in hard copy books. I use Logos 6 and have the platinum package. They also have a great mobile app that helps prep on the go. Expensive but worth it. https://www.logos.com
  7. Spotify
    35a2cb09 b803 4d17 8f5f 769ecb68d148
    Some may prefer silence for study but I like to listen to music. Spotify is great for that. Currently building a Bluegrass playlist. I have a premium account so I don't have to listen to ads. Syncs across devices and great for discovering new artists (artists make very little money from Spotify so if you find someone you like, buy their album). https://spotify.com
