Dear Online Friend,
This day is highly memorable in my life. Twentyone years ago (1996) this day I underwent an open heart surgery in the Christian Medical College Hospital in Vellore, following the diagnosis of multiple critical blocks in my arteries. I was 50 then. The medical guarantee was for 15 years but the gracious Lord is still adding years to my life. I believe that the work God has assigned to me on this earth concerning His Kingdom is not over yet. I covet your prayers for me as I consider each day, each month and each year as a gift and a bonus from God. I am unworthy of His mercies.
I’m delighted to release on this day on this website my 1200-page volume of “Bible Pearls” for free downloading. This contains 200 select Sermon Outlines from my 50 plus years of pulpit ministry, 1963-2016. There’s a wide range of subjects from Repentance to the Return of Christ.
The hard copy of this book was released on 14 August 2016 in the CSI Church in Virudhunagar, Tamilnadu, where I preached my first sermon in May 1963. The Tamil language edition was released on 29 January 2017 in the CSI Church in Kottaiyur, near Karaikudi, Tamilnadu, where as a college student (1963-1968) I learnt preaching by preaching to this congregation on various occasions. Both the English and Tamil editions are in wide circulation. The hard copy is priced at Rs.1000/- with a subsidy of 50% for fulltime servants of God. The Telugu edition is underway.
I recommend that you use the Outlines in “Bible Pearls” for your personal meditation and group study. Feel free to use them for pulpit preaching. You don't need to acknowledge the source! If you take printout copies for distribution, I request a brief line of acknowledgement on it. Kindly forward this letter with the attachment of this precious volume to all your Christian friends. Pray that “the Word of the Lord may have free course and be glorified” (2 Thess 3:1).
I shall be glad to hear from you how this book, “Bible Pearls,” is blessing you. Pray for me as I continue to endeavour to equip the people of God.
