An exemplar storyteller, Jesus was also a consummate storymaker. This innovative book helps pastors and teachers enhance their teaching with original, audience appropriate stories--the way Jesus did! Bruce Seymour explains how such stories work, when to use them, and how to create them. In addition to careful instruction about how to write stories, the book includes twenty examples of original ministry stories created by the author.
