Overview

All those who preach or teach, or who just enjoy fascinating stories, anecdotes, and illustrations, will want to include this book in their library. After a lifetime of preaching Don Yocom has collected all of his best illustrations from life and history and categorized them in a topical index, making this as especially valuable resource.

Don Yocom has performed a service not only for preachers, but also for lay persons who teach, make speeches, or sometimes even preach. He has a keen sense for recognizing a story that will open a "window," and this book is the fruit of a lifetime of collecting.
