All are easily staged and acted, fast-paced, and filled with wit and irony. Each has a series of discussion starters to get people talking about the message. The skits are arranged alphabetically by theme. Topics include love and relationships, godliness, accountability, and consumerism. Each item specifies themes, context, setting, and cast.
