Great for a pastor's library Apr 14, 2009
This is such a helpful, updated book of illustrations that most pastors will want to keep within reach as they prepare their weekly messages.
Contains previously published items Oct 25, 2008
I have enjoyed and used Larson's previous offerings of illustrations and was pleased he was bringing out another, but I find many of these are already in other books. It is massive which is a plus and a negative; it's a lot to dig through.
