Sharing the Savior’s Story

As He spoke, Jesus punctuated His messages with parables. Today, as “The Lutheran Hour” brings Christ to the nations–and the nations to the church, stories remain integral to how we communicate the Savior’s story of salvation. For personal use, we’ve placed 52 of these compelling illustrations – previously heard on “The Lutheran Hour”– into a devotional book, Changeless Christ, Changing World.

We also have free additional illustrations* for you to use as you help your parish or school renew and reflect on God’s love:

  • Draw on for sermon illustrations
  • Emphasize lessons in Bible class
  • Deepen chapel talks or devotionals

Check out our story index below today. Just one caveat: the background of these stories may be unknown.

* Publishers grant the purchaser the right to reproduce these selections for personal and ministry use, but not to be sold or reprinted without permission.
