Overview

Enjoy these SAMPLE pages from Tell Me a Story-

Jesus
called His followers witnesses. We are, in fact, witnesses to His unfolding
story. This story is not only our calling-it's the next generation's best chance
of identifying with the Church and changing the world.

As we become storytellers,
we learn to see the world in terms of stories being lived and told. We discover
deeper insights into God, ourselves, and others. Through story we uncover a better
framework for understanding abstract concepts such as purpose and conflict, as well
as more concrete aspects of our lives such as work, technology, communication, and
community. Story touches every part of our lives because it's the form factor of
our lives-story is inside all of us, and we're all inside a story.

    Scott¿s first book, Tell Me a Story, takes a look at how God use

    Scott’s first book, Tell Me a Story, takes a look at how God uses narrative. Scott uses bible stories as well as his personal experiences in the book. There are also some quotes from people but not many that I was familiar with. I thought is was an encouraging book that reminds us that we have a part of God’s story of creation, of redemption, of past, present and future. We each have a unique life – a story – that contributes to His bigger story. I think this book will speak to each reader differently.
