This 24-page book is an alphabetical list of active verbs I have compiled over the years. The preface of the book contains helpful hints, as well as specific illustrations of how to use active verbs. What is an active verb? A verb that shows action. It is the heart of a sentence. You can immediately improve your writing, preaching, and teaching by using active verbs. Few things have helped my own writing, preaching, and teaching like learning to use active verbs. When formulating my outlines for preaching and writing, I almost always use active verbs because the most important part of a sermon or Bible study is the application. God's Word tells us, But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves (James 1:22). Available only in spiralbound format.
