Usages of Contextualization (e.g., illustrations, quotations, etc.):
--Was the sermon based on sound exegesis? Why or why not?
--Was there one big idea addressed by the sermon? If so, what was it?
--Did the body of the sermon develop the ideas from the text & introduction? Why or why not?
--Were the exegetical ideas from the text connected with the overarching storyline of the bible?
--Was the application/conclusion based on the exegetical ideas presented in the body of the sermon? Why or why not?
--How, if at all, does sermon direct listeners to depend on Christ?
--Would you say that the preacher preached to the whole heart (mind, will, emotions), or just to one or two elements of it?
--Were listeners challenged and engaged through the pastor's use of second person pronouns (i.e, you, you all)?
--At the end of the sermon, would listeners be left asking “So what?” In other words, was there a clear summary of the main ideas followed by a clear, practical application? Why or why not?
--Describe the pastor’s communication style (i.e., speaking persona). In this persona, was he likeable?
--In the introduction, did the pastor manage to grab the audience’s attention early on?
--Was the pastor consistently engaging? Did he keep your attention?
--In what ways did the pastor communicate well (i.e., strengths)?
--Are there any ways the pastor could have improved his communication (i.e., weaknesses)?
