About Arthur Pierson
Arthur Tappan Pierson (March 6, 1837 – June 3, 1911) was an American Presbyterian pastor, early fundamentalist leader, and writer who preached over 13,000 sermons, wrote over fifty books, and gave Bible lectures as part of a transatlantic preaching ministry that made him famous in Scotland and England. He was a consulting editor for the original "Scofield Reference Bible" (1909) for his friend, C. I. Scofield and was also a friend of D. L. Moody, George Müller (whose biography 'George Muller of Bristol' he wrote), Adoniram Judson Gordon, and C. H. Spurgeon. Throughout his career, Pierson filled several pulpit positions around the world as an urban pastor who cared passionately for the poor.

About "The Making of a Sermon"
The first part of this book explains how to study the Bible and the foundations for preparing a godly sermon, with sections like: Searching the Word, Meditating on the Word, Comparing the Word, Praying through the Word, Believing the Word, Obeying the Word.

The second part of the book (most of the book) provides and explains 217 sermon outlines refined from Pierson's lifetime of preaching, teaching and study. With 360 pages in the printed edition, this text is suitable for the preacher seeking a sermon idea or the lay person needing a starting point to study the Bible.
