The All-New Book of Amazing Facts, Volume 1, features some of the most eye-opening and sometimes unbelievable facts that Pastor Doug has used in his radio and television programs, sermons, and books to teach even more amazing Bible truths.
For more than 25 years, Pastor Doug Batchelor, president of Amazing Facts, has been using historical, scientific, and other amazing facts to share the gospel, making the Bible more approachable and easier to understand for millions.
And now many of his most popular and unusual facts have been compiled in this exciting new collection. Whether you’re preparing a sermon, need an illustration for a children’s story, or just enjoy interesting trivia, this volume is sure to be a wonderful resource in your home or office. Captivate and entertain your family and friends with these amazing facts—then lead them to a kernel of God’s truth that the Holy Spirit can cultivate!
Pastor Doug says, “We are all curious creatures attracted to the extraordinary. I should know; I’m one of them! As a kid, I loved leafing through encyclopedias to learn new and interesting things about our world. Even now, anything out of the ordinary has the potential to capture my attention and stimulate my thinking. Amazing facts are the spice of life!
“So it’s no surprise that Jesus often used people’s natural inquisitiveness as a tool for teaching them, whether through parables about nature or by recalling amazing historical events. This same idea was the basis for Amazing Facts’ first radio program, and it’s been a staple of my sermons, articles, and Bible Answers Live radio program for nearly forty years. In this first volume, I’ve collected some of my favorite illustrations—old and new—not only to pique your curiosity and entertain you, but also as a resource for exploring Bible truth. I hope this book can be used as a reliable and enjoyable tool for teachers, pastors, and lay evangelists to illustrate the principles of God’s Word with fascinating, not-so-typical facts.
“Consider these facts a savory appetizer to stimulate a deeper hunger for the God who makes infinite wonders.”
Great amazing facts in a book. I read one every day with my class.
