Usually, when you go to write your post, there is an option to insert a "More" tag. Anything above the More tag will be displayed on the front page, and they have to click the "Read more" link (or whatever it is called) to read the entire post.

I belive that the <!--More--> tag is something specific to WordPress blogs. There are instructions for a Blogger-specific version of this technique already posted here.

As Matticus has informed me, the <--More--> tag can also sometimes cut off posts in blog readers which might stop people from being able to read the rest from work(due to firewalls, filters, etc).

Just something to keep in mind.

I believe that it should work out of the box, though there may be limitations based upon your template (not sure). Try it! :)
