Experiential Storytelling: (Re) Discovering Narrative to Communicate God's Message by Mark Miller

The “Been there, done that” culture is starving for reality. Hardly satisfied with the modern conventions of citing facts and figures and pushing propositions, emerging churches are jumping into the narrative form of communication with both feet. But not all emerging church leaders have an inherent handle on the craft and skill of using narrative as a sermon form. Experiential Storytelling zeros in on the hows and whys of narrative, as well as the importance of sharing personal experience to double your storytelling ammunition. In addition, author Mark Miller goes several steps further, giving examples of real-time, hands-on experiences for church members as innovative extensions of traditional teaching and preaching that offer them greater scriptural understanding and ownership of the gospel story.Chapters include:• The Dawning of the Age of Experience• Once Upon a Story• Awakening the Sleeping Giant in the Church—C*R*E*A*T*I*V*T*Y• Reimagining the “Sermon”• Elements of Experiential Storytelling• Killer Apps
