Endorsements and Reviews
Derek Cleave, Evangelist, Author and Chaplain
In his book ‘The Craft of the Sermon’ the Methodist preacher W.E. Sangster spoke of the importance of illustrations and anecdotes. He said they served as ‘windows’ which let light in on the truth we are presenting. In his teaching the Lord Jesus often did this.
On many occasions I have felt that some preachers have been guilty of preaching the truth without the practical application to the lives and circumstances of those to whom they minister. It hasn’t always been ‘grounded truth’.
John Mollitt’s many years of pastoral ministry have given him the opportunity to preach and to apply the truth not only to his own congregation in Ingleton but also to a wider audience.
These anecdotes collected over a period of time are both comforting and challenging – and to Christians and non-Christians alike.
Each one is solidly based on Scripture but applied simply to everyday situations which we must all face. They will do you good.
