The Art of Illustration is an insightful work that explains how storytelling is a highly effective tool while sharing a message. Illustrations are an integral part of preaching as they tend to brighten up an audience and grab their attention. With that in mind, C. H. Spurgeon made an incredible attempt to teach preachers the right way to use illustrations and anecdotes within their sermons. This volume contains five lectures that were initially delivered to the students of the Pastors' College, displaying Spurgeon's method of artfully incorporating illustrations and stories into his sermons and other innovative ways to make them come alive. The success of this method is evident from the fact that thousands of people returned every week to listen to Spurgeon preach.
