Overview

Whether you're looking for a great collection of sermon illustrations, or just want to enjoy reading amusing and inspiring anecdotes drawn from a lifetime in the ministry, Windows For Life is a fascinating book you'll want to include in your library. In this companion to his popular Windows For Sermons, Don Yocom shares a treasure trove of humorous and insightful stories on a wide range of topics. Each "window" sheds light on faith and life, and is an excellent source of material for preaching and teaching. And a convenient topical index makes it easy to quickly locate items on a specific subject.

In his second "Windows" book, Don Yocom shares brief stories and one-line bits of wisdom that will be of interest for public speaking, sermons, or simply reading. The index is especially helpful.

Edwin Maynard

former Assistant General Secretary, United Methodist Communications

Don Yocom displays an uncanny ability to take current events (such as the war on terrorism) and exploit their homiletical potential, thus providing resources for the preacher who is endeavoring to project pulpit relevance.

Emerson S. Colaw

United Methodist bishop (retired)

What a delightful read! The deeper meanings of life are perhaps best communicated through our life stories. A seasoned pastor shares stories from the storehouse of his preaching, enhancing our ability to see and to be whom God is gifting us.

George O. Campbell

Senior Pastor/Chaplain, Otterbein-Lebanon Retirement Community

Lebanon, Ohio

Full of humor, wit, and wisdom, Windows For Life is a refreshing pause -- it's pleasant and relaxing reading. We need more of this in today's world.

William Augman

Springfield District Superintendent

West Ohio Conference, United Methodist Church

Don R. Yocom has preached engaging, inspiring sermons for more than a half-century in several Methodist congregations in Indiana, Maryland, and Ohio. He is also the author of Windows For Sermons (CSS).
