Every speaker and preacher needs stories, sayings and phrases to hammer home a point or simply to entertain while informing. This is the definitive modern story reference book, and the stories and quotes here come from a wide range of sources. Spanning both the traditional and the modern, here are quotes and stories featuring saints and sportspeople, apostles and novelists, martyrs and musicians. Subjects are listed alphabetically with a 'see also' index, and cover abortion, bereavement, conversion stories, depression, justice, and hundreds of others: biblical terms, doctrine, moral and ethical issues, insights from modern culture. There is a Bible verse or passage for each quote, making this handbook an indispensable source of cross-referenced material.

Here, too, are facts calculated to interest and amaze listeners. And here are Bible verses, stories, and cross-references for each quote.
