Everyone who speaks or preaches needs a ready supply of thought-provoking and illustrative resource material. This revision and expansion provides many more attention-getting stories or those ’’just right’’ quotes that add depth to any sermon or presentation.
Most people are familiar with Ralph Waldo Emerson’s remark about the person who builds a better mousetrap. Pastors and speakers might be surprised to know that the full quote attributed to him states:
’’If a man can write a better book, preach a better sermon, or make a better mousetrap than his neighbor, though he builds his house in the woods, the world will make a beaten path to his door.’’
Over 5,000 more quotes, stories, anecdotes, and illustrations from this book will help the pastor prepare a better sermon or the speaker present a better speech. This collection of both contemporary and classic material puts a wealth of interest-building illustrations at one’s fingertips.
