Illustrations do not replace good preaching founded on God’s Word, but they add to its presentation, sometimes striking deep into a hearer’s heart. The right illustration can explain, clarify, and apply truth to your sermon. Dr. Green has carefully selected, developed and edited these illustrations for use by pastors, Bible study teachers and those who preach the Word of God. The illustrations are arranged alphabetically by topic, covering subjects from abortion, drugs, and divorce to faith, commitment, and Christian living. The book also includes a section of illustrations from selected Scriptures.
Please note: there is considerable overlap between the 1989 and the 2005 edition of Michael P. Green's Illustrations for Biblical Preaching. To save even more, purchase the 2005 edition as part of the Preachers Collection (7 vols.).
The anecdotes, quotes, poems and observations in this book are the best on the market today. I recommend them highly to students at Denver Seminary, and I am delighted to endorse them to biblical preachers who know the power of the phrase “let me illustrate.”
