Favorite personal illustrations are compiled from the great preacher Donald Grey Barnhouse's sermons, along with the applications he drew from them. The book is organized by doctrine and illustrated for devotional reading. Donald Grey Barnhouse was a Bible teacher, pastor, radio speaker, and editor. But above all,, he was the master storyteller who illustrated Bible truth with color and high drama. Barnhouse never used an illustration for effect or to warm up an audience. Each is a parable that animates a text or teaching.
The brief stories in this collection are charming and picturesque reading, particularly as accompanied by nostalgic drawings. But beneath their simplicity are stored heavy loads of meaning, organized by subject area.
