A well-told story can be motivational and inspirational, especially when it's framed in familiar language that everyone can relate to. Constance Berg draws on her gift for storytelling to deliver modern parables that reach across cultural, class, gender, and social lines. Berg's collection of tales illustrating biblical passages from Cycle A of the Revised Common Lectionary will touch your soul. Her stories are clear and easily understood -- not only by those in the pew, but by anyone looking for insightful devotional reading.

Constance Berg is a storyteller. Not too saccharine, not too neat, her stories have the ring of real life -- and real hope. Her writing is as strong as her faith, and the two make a blessed combination.

Constance Berg's reflections based on the liturgical cycle of readings are insightful and refreshing. Written from the heart, they bring the Word of God into life's everyday experiences and give readers a fresh perspective of God at work in his human creations. Berg's ability to see God in the every day makes the scriptures come to life.

These stories wonderfully weave a tapestry that enables the preacher to connect the weekly texts to the lives of parishioners in touching, powerful ways.

Constance Berg's conversational style of writing immediately invites you to become part of the story; the characters seem to be lifelong friends.... The stories are woven together with images of how God's story is connected to our story.
