Feathers for Arrows
Illustrations for Preachers and Teachers
Gospel truths are like arrows designed to penetrate the hearts of men. And as Charles H. Spurgeon knew, gospel truths fly straighter and truer when appropriately placed illustrations are used. In fact, Spurgeon would carry a notebook with him so that he could jot down useful metaphors and anecdotes whenever he ran across them. In Feathers for Arrows, Spurgeon offers preachers and teachers access to some of the illustrations that he collected over the course of his ministry. If you are a pastor or teacher and are looking for illustrations, improve your message with choice feathers from the prince of preachers.
