Sermon Illustrations

Tony Campolo.

From Philadelphia came to my Seminary to speak.

Wrote a new book about Christianity and the environment.

His first stop on promo tour was Princeton Theological Seminary.

I was a seminary student and I was looking forward to hearing him speak.

Tony got up and was animated and funny as usual,

Then came the time to promo his new book that he wrote,

He held it up high and said,

"I was overcome with emotion when I first read this book",

He paused a moment

"I mean when I wrote this book"

We all laughed, he was caught, he moved on with his talk.

Paul is not using a Ghost Writer.

He has dictated this letter, up to this point, verse 21.

He wants the Corinthians to know its authenticity.
