Storyteller's Companion to the Bible: Matthew, Mark, and Luke

Overview

Telling the story of Jesus has been a part of Christian practice for nearly 2000 years. In fact, one of the earliest forms of Christian preaching was storytelling, or telling Jesus stories. These early story/sermons provided the raw material for the gospel narratives. Because the gospel writers wrote down these early stories and preserved them, today we can read the story of Jesus in the Bible. Yet we still have an age-old longing to hear the story told, in the same manner as it...

Overview

Telling the story of Jesus has been a part of Christian practice for nearly 2000 years. In fact, one of the earliest forms of Christian preaching was storytelling, or telling Jesus stories. These early story/sermons provided the raw material for the gospel narratives. Because the gospel writers wrote down these early stories and preserved them, today we can read the story of Jesus in the Bible. Yet we still have an age-old longing to hear the story told, in the same manner as it has been told by generations of storytellers from ages past.
This volume is designed to help the reader do just that. The editors have taken a representative collection of stories about Jesus from the synoptic gospels (Matthew, Mark, and Luke) and provided for each story a new analysis that illuminates how it works as a story. Paired with each analysis is a creative retelling of the story by a professional storyteller-preacher. The goal is to provide the reader with insights into the Biblical story and suggestions on how it might be retold for audiences today.

Edited by Michael E. Williams and Dennis E. Smith Commentary by Mikeal C. Parsons Storytellers: Jo-Ann Elizabeth (Little) Jennings Pam McGrath

    GOOD STORIES AND STRANGE STORIES

    Like all storybooks, this volume of the Storyteller's Companion to the Bible has its high points and it's obscure points. There are 25 readings extracted from the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke included here. Most of these are the readings you would expect to hear at churches following the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL); basically those worship traditions following the cycle of the Christian Year. Each reading has a few pages of commentary and then the Bible story is retold by one of the editors. While I could see any teacher using these resources, preachers would benefit from this volume the most. The high and obscure points come in the Retelling the Story sections. Sometimes I love how the editors adapt the Gospel to our lives today; sometimes their applications are beyond me. Overall, when the Retellings hit the mark, they do so effectively. I am also well aware that different readers will find what I see as strange stories very good to them. Then again, after a few years of preaching on other Scripture readings, my return to a particular Retelling grabs me as it hadn't before. I have as many volumes of the Storyteller's Companion as I can acquire on my bookshelf, because I never can tell when a retelling will move from my 'strange' to 'good' catagories.
