It's now easier than ever to find the perfect story or anecdote to hook listeners and hold their attention. Listeners and readers will laugh, cry, think, and get the point and remember it.
If you need just the right illustration to illustrate a biblical truth, to capture the audience's attention, to clarify a point, or to draw a conclusion this book will help you find it. With the right example, you can turn hostile skeptics into interested participants and turn people around spiritually.
Truth made clear through the use of just the right illustration, anecdote, story, or quotation is applied more quickly and remembered long. - Charles Swindoll
Publisher's note: This book was previously published as The Tale of the Tardy Oxcart.

You would far better buy: "Great Quotations That Shaped the Western World" by Carl H. Middleton, or anything by C.S. Lewis.

I was worried that the book might be a bit outdated, but the illustrations used in the book give timeless lessons and thoughts that could be relevant to anyone reading/hearing it being used.
IMO, great resource for young pastors looking to add some depth into the "illustrations" criteria of their messages.

Samuel Arthur5 Stars Out Of 5December 17, 2008Samuel ArthurRev Swindoll has been my spiritual leader for over two decades even though we have never met. His radio broadcast and books has been of great help and inspiration to me, so for me it was one more to my collections, and I must say that it is just super. Thank you
