Peter Mead: Most Illustrations Need More Time

27 February 2008

image Peter Mead over at Biblical Preaching has an interesting post re: illustrations. He notes that their is a hierarchy of illustrations and some require more time in preparation in set-up and delivery.  He begins:

Robinson and other instructors teach a hierarchy of illustrative materials.  In a simplified four-level hierarchy the list would be as follows:

Level 1 illustrations come from the experience of both the speaker and listeners.

Level 2 illustrations come from the experience of the listeners, but the speaker has to learn about them since they have not personally experienced the same.

Level 3 illustrations come from the experience of the speaker, but must be learned by the listeners.

Level 4 illustrations lie outside the experience of both speaker and listener.

He goes on and describes the process well.  You can find the full post here.
