PDF vs ePUB
PDF is a very common format that almost anything can open. When in doubt, choose this option.
ePUB is a newer easier to use and read option. If you can, utilize this option. But, if you have any problems, then feel free to use PDF instead.
Why do we publicize these notes?
When I was a young Pastor in my early twenties, an evangelist came to preach a week of meetings at our church. While we were talking in my office one morning, he asked me what had filled up my trash can. I unashamedly confessed that I just threw my sermon notes away after I finished preaching what was in the notes. The evangelist, David Briggs, asked me if there was a Christian bookstore in town that we could visit.
The next morning, I had the privilege of escorting him to the largest Christian bookstore in America at that time. He took me straight to a very large isle with nothing but commentaries from floor to ceiling. He wryly stated to me that these were nothing more than sermon notes that some preachers just discard in a trash can when they are finished with them. This was one of those small moments in life that bring about great change.
