Item Description...
Discover truths of the Bible in ways you will never forget.

Would you like to be better equipped at sharing your faith?

Would you like to have analogies and short stories that captivate your listeners? Would illustrations help your teaching be more memorable and have a greater impact?

Parables and illustrations were used throughout the teaching ministry of Jesus, the Nazarene, who walked the pathways of Israel over 2000 years ago. He used them to clarify changeless qualities of spiritual truths that would have otherwise remained veiled. Technology and our way of life have changed dramatically since the time of Jesus but the human heart remains the same. We long to understand the truths of the Bible and what they hold for us yet we often need help integrating them into our lives.

Come to know the truths of the Bible with easy to remember short stories. The timeless analogies and parables in this book will help unlock spiritual truths in ways that can be easily understood, remembered and retold. It is the hope of the author that this book, The Collection - Illustrations to Live By, will enlighten, refresh and encourage you in your own pursuit of God and equip you to share the timeless qualities of our Heavenly Father and His Beloved Son with those along your lifes pathways.

A Well Written Book Using Life-Experience Illustrations  Aug 18, 2007
It is not my intent to critique your book but I would like to mention some things that impressed me and one thing that I learned from studying Jesus life that might be of benefit to you.

Firstly, is the simplicity of the book and its anecdotal form. There is a television program extant that has a title that asks Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader? As a man of 85 years I have come to believe that the present generation is not as smart as a ten year old as to their knowledge of the Bible & Christianity. Therefore it is good that you are writing at the upper level of their comprehension of the subject at hand.

An example of that is page 23 in reference to the word "Grace", a much used but little understood word in the Biblical sense. After reading page 23 I made a concerted effort to pin down a definition of "Grace" on the Internet. "Fred Astaire was a graceful dancer." "The woman took the compliment with `Grace'" But you phrased it undeserved favor, a phrase ripe with meaning. I might paraphrase it as "unearned favor" if you like. The ransom sacrifice was exactly that--an unearned gift sorely needed by imperfect humans doomed to death by the inherited imperfection from the first pair, Adam and Eve.

The one thing that I would like to say though is--never usurp an area that is reserved exclusively for the Creator. Jesus said: "JOHN - kjv 5:19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise." I haven't been able to find the page in your book but I remember you dismissing certain religions sort of "out of hand". Would it not be better to let the Creator do the judging since it is a privilege reserved to himself to do through the Messiah. I do not believe in Universal Salvation but I feel that we may be surprised at some who are resurrected--Catholics, Mormons, Jews, etc. I don't agree with the tenets of those particular religions but the Creator judges the hearts of individuals and that is something that you and I can't do. Whatever transpires from the Creator & his only begotten son will be completely just and with agape love.
