People relate to popular music, and this book helps you use popular music to draw readers into the Gospel. The material in this book will provide insight that ties popular song lyrics to Scripture in such a way that non-believers will be drawn to the relevance and power of God's Word. The author, Tony Rufo, is a communications/ministry executive, marketing consultant, writer, and broadcaster who has over 20 years of experience working in the Christian and general markets. His published works include media and music articles, book reviews, radio and television commercials and scripts, and evangelistic essays. "True Tunes News" featured his article, “The Gospel According to John, Paul, George, and Ringo—Good Time Rock 'n Roll or Religion for the Undiscerning?” which was the inspiration for this book. He also authored the “Media Mix” column for the semimonthly "Horizon International" magazine, which included installments on popular music and the Beatles. Tony lives in the suburbs of Chicago with his family. Features:
  • Alphabetically arranged topic guide

    If the apostle Paul had not punctuated his words with images of the armor of God or the racecourse, would we so easily remember his instruction? The march on Washington might have become nothing more than a ragged hike across a majestic mall if Martin Luther King, Jr. had not led us through a "dream" and onto a "mountaintop."

    Such is the power of illustrations. They contain a hidden dynamic of living that captures our attention and furthers our understanding in a way that no other sermonic tool can match. Can they be overused and their purpose abused? Yes--and by many they are. But to eliminate them completely would be unwise, maintains Bryan Chapell.

    Instead, he responds to those concerns by reviewing the theory behind illustrations, sharing why they're important, and demonstrating how you can use them effectively in your biblical preaching. This book clearly affirms that illustrations are integral to powerful preaching--not because they entertain but because they expand and deepen applications in the lives of your listeners. They infuse your words with life without comprising the message, making the truth of the Word ring clearly in people's hearts long after your sermon is done.
