Preacher and homiletics professor Steve Brown once said, "If you get one good illustration, it's worth every dime you paid for it." Preaching Illustrations from Church History is a ready reference of over four hundred choice illustrations for use in preaching.

"This is a priceless treasury of illustrative vignettes culled from church history. The anecdotes themselves make profitable, edifying reading. As sermon illustrations, they are provocative and effective. Their greatest benefit is that they will promote a deeper interest and a more thorough knowledge of church history among pastors and lay people alike. I love how Ron Prosise has catalogued and thoroughly documented this material so as to be eminently useful for preachers. This is by far the best of all the recent illustration books I have seen." John MacArthur, Pastor-Teacher, Grace Community Church, Teacher, Grace to You
"Historical examples are one of our primary sources for sermon illustrations. Prosise provides a treasure trove of these, arranged by topic so that they may be readily identified and appropriately adapted for contemporary purposes."
