“If we look through a piece of red glass, everything is red; through blue glass everything is blue; through yellow glass, everything is yellow, and so on.
“The glorious truth is that when we believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as our Saviour, God looks at us through the Lord Jesus Christ. He sees us in all the white holiness of His Son. That is the great New Testament doctrine of the imputation of our sin to the account of Christ and His righteousness to our account.”
Preachers and Bible teachers prize good illustrations. A great story is often the clearest and most memorable way for listeners to grasp the truth of God’s Word.
This timeless collection brings together hundreds of penetrating illustrations and pithy anecdotes from one of the twentieth century’s evangelical master expositors, Donald Grey Barnhouse. With typical warmth and humor, Barnhouse illuminates all of Scripture’s key topics: God, Christ, the tempter and temptation, sin, salvation, the Bible, the church, Christian life and growth, forgiveness, witnessing, thanksgiving, Christian families, and much more.
This two-in-one collection was previously published as Illustrating Great Themes of Scripture and Let Me Illustrate: 400 Stories, Anecdotes, and Illustrations.
Donald Grey Barnhouse (1895–1960) was the beloved pastor of the historic Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia for 33 years. He was also longtime editor of Revelation and Eternity magazines and a popular Bible teacher on “The Bible Study Hour” radio program. Thousands of contemporary pastors treasure his multi-volume expository series, Romans: Expositions of Bible Doctrine.
