Using Word Images In A Sermon
 
By: Fred Craddock

Fred Craddock gives 5 principles for using word images in a sermon:

1 - The best images are drawn from everyday life, and are set in forms that the hearer can understand.

2 - The best images use language that elicits concrete responses from a crowd, for example, "the odor of burped up milk on a blouse."

3 - The best images avoid self-conscious and unnecessary interruptions.

4 - The best images use adjectives and adverbs economically.

5 - The best images are spoken in one's own language.
