Sermon Illustrations

The past few weeks I have been reading a book called "Christ Centered Preaching" by Bryan Chapell, an excellent book dealing with expository preaching that I believe all preachers would do well to read. He makes good solid basic practical preaching points in the comments that didn’t make the main text, in the footnotes and appendices. In these notes, it seems as if the writer expresses what he really wanted to say. I felt like he was looking up from his notes to look me in the eye, expressing the truly important issues.
