One of the things that makes Fred Craddock's sermons so compelling is his masterful use of storytelling, but, until now, few of his stories have ever been published. This collection offers for the first time hundreds of Craddock stories told in his own words and a glimpse of his life.

A wonderful collection of wisdom from one of the best pastors that ever stood in a pulpit. I still open this book frequently and use it for teaching and well as pure enjoyment and enrichment.

Everyone who preaches (or speaks publicly) should have this book. It's crammed with very short stories told by a master preacher. These stories pay repeated reading. Many end unresolved, leaving the reader wanting the whole sermon. Many others call for putting the book down to wonder, ponder, laugh, or regroup. The only fault I see in this book is the absence of an index; so, I made my own.

Mike Graves was my homiletics professor at Midwestern Seminary and Richard Ward was my fellowship advisor at Yale Divinity School! Together, they've done a great job of distilling Craddock's preaching into a representative list of his stories. I've never met Fred Craddock.

I was disappointed but not enough to stop reading. I guess I had my expectations too high. The stories are a mixture of fascinating, strange, interesting, weird, helpful, antiquated, etc. I marked a few that I may modify and use later but on as illustrations.
