Rhetoric & Homiletics: Evans & Spurgeon On Illustrations

Tony Evans: 

“I am regularly asked where I get my illustrations.  My answer is always the same: Everything for me is an illustration because I have learned to think illustratively.  The wonders of God’s creation make everything that exists, as well as all the events that occur, possible illustrations.  The key is to learn to view everything through this lens.” — (from “Tony Evans Book of Illustrations”)

Evans provides additional insights into that creative process in his book and during his interview by H. C. Charles.
