Answers Now Available from Preacher Who Departed in the Pulpit

Answers for the many questions related to Christianity are newly available this week from a credible source, one who may even have gotten a divine plug.

The life works of Dr. Jack L. Arnold are now readily available at, providing a searchable list of the pastor and theologian's sermons on every imaginable topic, from classical theology such as Ecclesiology and Soteriology to practical issues such as marriage and family, genetic engineering, and church politics as well as verse by verse commentary for a multitude of books in the Bible.

Arnold made international news in 2005 after dying instantly in the pulpit after uttering his last words, “ . . . and when I go to heaven . . .” His extraordinary death was covered by the AP, CNN, and even Paul Harvey, but his life work—penning over 1200 sermons word for word, several a week for 40 years—has remained unknown to the larger public until now.

“ 'By faith he still speaks,' ” said Jim Fitzgerald, spokesman for Equipping Pastors International, the growing mission organization founded by Dr. Arnold. “The author of the book of Hebrews was referring to Abel, but the same is true for Jack.”

“We use his sermons extensively in training pastors in developing nations across the world. Now, the larger public has access to Jack's sermons, and the indigenous leaders we serve can get immediate answers from Jack by doing a simple search at”

Jack Arnold the pastor was well known for his expository preaching. He made his way through a large portion of the Bible, verse by verse. Among those sermon series archived at include the gospels, Acts, Romans, Hebrews, Genesis, Exodus, and many others.

Arnold earned his doctorate in theology from Dallas Theological Seminary and received the Loraine Chafer Award for best student in systematic theology. includes Arnold's sermon series such as Ecclesiology, Eschatology, Pneumatology, Soteriology and many others.

Arnold has a host of other sermon series on more practical approaches to the Christian life. Sermon series include Acceptable Worship, Church Polity, Experiencing the Holy Spirit, Biblical Evangelism, Healing, Christian Marriage, Family and many others.

“Jack's passion was putting feet on ideas,” said EPI board member Bob Saville, one of Arnold's longtime parishioners. “He wouldn’t just share great concepts and preach at you. He lived the Christian life personally, spent time with you, and took you with him as he interacted with others for Christ.”
