- Topically Arranged
Here is "something new" in sermon illustrations. Dr. Brooks has prepared this to-the-point time-saving volume for pastors, Bible teachers, evangelists—all who seek to present the Word of God with power.
The subjects are topically arranged and unusual in that each of illustrations is from the Bible and firmly supported by related Scripture.
As Dr. Brooks declares in his introductory remarks to this unique supply of "sermon vitamins" a sermon "need not be limited to the exposition and enforcement of Scripture, for much of helpfulness is to be drawn from the books of nature and of human life," but "there are no better sermon illustrations than those to be found in the Bible itself. This work is intended to aid the preacher and Bible teacher in locating the best of these, for whatever topic he may seek to illuminate..."
