It's now easier than ever to find the perfect story or anecdote to hook listeners and hold their attention. Listeners and readers will laugh, cry, think, and get the point…and remember it.
If you need just the right illustration to illustrate a biblical truth, to capture the audience's attention, to clarify a point, or to draw a conclusion this book will help you find it. With the right example, you can turn hostile skeptics into interested participants and turn people around spiritually.
Truth made clear through the use of just the right illustration, anecdote, story, or quotation is applied more quickly and remembered long. - Charles Swindoll

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I've always enjoyed Chuck Swindoll's preaching and books. It always amazed me at how well he could come up with excellent illustrations and stories to compliment his work. So, I was thrilled when I ran across his Ultimate Book of Illustrations and Quotes. The book is very good and will be of significant help in my own sermons and writing. My only regret is that it doesn't have an index, nor is there a means to associate the illustrations with Biblical Passages. The Table of Contents is by Topic. I'd recommend it be made available in software (Logos), so it could be accessed with a good search engine.
