Title: A STRATEGY TO IMPROVE THE USE OF ILLUSTRATIONS IN EXPOSITORY PREACHING AT FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH, BROOMFIELD, COLORADO.
Author: Raynor, Allen Ray
Advisor: Vickers, Brian
Abstract: This Doctor of Ministry project examines the biblical and practical rationale for the use of illustrations in expository preaching. Chapter 1 gives an introduction to the topic and gives the ministry context for which the project was conducted. Chapter 2 is an examination of some key passages from both the Old and New Testaments relevant to illustration. Particular emphasis is given to Ecclesiastes 12:9-11, Ezekiel 37:1-14, Hosea 3:1, Acts 17:28, Romans 10:14, and 2 Corinthians 4:7. Chapter 3 focuses on examples of how to illustrate points in expository preaching. Principles are given on how to determine the needs of the original audience as well as a contemporary audience. Framing the illustration and filling the frame are examined. Donald Grey Barnhouse and Charles Swindoll are given as examples and brief commentary is provided. Chapter 4 reports the results of a 15-week project. The project includes project methodology, data collection, and analysis. Chapter 5 is an evaluation of the entire project. The evaluation includes the project's purpose, goals, strengths, weaknesses, theological reflections and personal reflections.
