- Over 1500 sermon illustrations arranged by topic and exhaustively indexed
- Covers contemporary subjects such as abortion, drugs, and divorce, as well as the timeless subjects of faith, commitment, and Christian living
As Michael Green states in the preface of the book: Sermon illustrations are like color on a car. Although they no substitute for careful study and exposition of the text, they do make its presentation more interesting. In addition, like a flashing red light in your rear-view mirror, they can arrest attention. And they can ignite a response as quickly as a lightening bolt in a drought-stricken land.
