This week, as Princeton Theological Seminary hosts The Joe R. Engle Institute of Preaching, we're lifting up free preaching resources available online.

One of these is The Earl Palmer Collection, which preserves articles, newsletters, essays, transcripts, study guides, poems, lectures, commentaries and more representing sixty-four years of ministry in digital format with audio and video recordings of sermons and seminars plus selected writings by Reverend Earl F. Palmer, Class of 1956. The collection is part of Princeton Seminary's Theological Commons digital library.

Rev. Earl Palmer has served in pastoral ministries at University Presbyterian Church in Seattle, Washington; Union Church in Manila, Philippines; First Presbyterian Church of Berkeley, California and The National Presbyterian Church in Washington, D.C. He is viewed as one of the most gifted teachers of the Bible, with a unique style that unfolds the text and allows the listener to make great discoveries. As such, Earl has gained a reputation as a great expositor.1 He also has a strong interest in pursuing theological themes that are present in classic and contemporary literature, with particular focus on such authors as C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Karl Barth. As an author, Earl has published numerous articles and eighteen books plus contributed chapters in other published works. After his retirement, Earl Palmer Ministries (EPM) was created so that this teacher can keep sharing his gift with the world.

Find a link to this collection and other free preaching resources in the research guide linked at the bottom of this post.
