HASH(0xa1d1bc18) out of 5 stars Great for Sermon Illustrations Dec 27 1999
By Baptist International Missions, Inc. - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book was given to me for a Christmas present and it is the best I've read! It is very difficult to put it down. Chuck combines each story or quotation with the truth of the Scriptures to create life-changing applications of power and conviction. Hundreds of illustrations are group in alphabetical order that makes it easy to find. I will be sharing it with my studentss, plus using the illustrations in sermons and Bible studies.

HASH(0xa252ddc8) out of 5 stars Help from a master servant of the Master April 8 2006
By Walter G. Fitzsimons - Published on
Format: Hardcover
We all need a good story. We need to people our exposition with the concrete. The listeners hope to hear the words "there was this man that... or I am told that ...", knowing that the preacher is using a storehouse of wisdom. Preaching is not about one's own special story, but about clearly and in an entertaining manner telling our shared experience and needs. This type of book is a must for all who preach or speak.

HASH(0xa239d678) out of 5 stars Completly Amazing Resource Feb. 17 2009
By B. Coates - Published on
Format: Hardcover
As soon as I received this book in the mail, i started randomly opening the book up, pointing my finger in it and reading what I picked and everyone illustration i opened too was awsome and I had to share each with everyone in my house. Every Illustration is amazing, thought provoking, a lot are very funny, some are very serious. This is a great tool for Pastors, Lay Ministers, People who love to write (books, bloggs, letters, etc.), Illustrations bring the point home. That's why pastors normally open with one and close with one in there sermons, it's how Jesus taught (in parables), This Book is a must have for just about anyone but especially those in ministry. I like to write and I post monthly bloggs [...] and I will be using this book to help me draw together my bloggs and I really believe they will help me knock my messages out of the park. I can't wait for my next book to come in 'Tony Evans book of Illustrations'. God's Peace, Your Brother in Christ -Brian
