Item description for Hoof 'n Mouth Disease: Biblical Monologues and How to Do Them by Edward W. Thorn & Raymond Bailey...

Storytelling is older than the Bible, as much of the Old Testament consists of stories that arose out of an oral tradition, and Jesus was a master storyteller. So it makes sense that monologues capture the eyes, ears, and brains of the congregation. Stories captivate audiences - mention any character in the Bible and people recall a favorite story, not the theme of a moralistic three-point sermon. This book of creative monologues will help pastors connect with their listeners in a vital and vibrant way.

Publishers Description
.".. Edward Thorn has written an excellent manual... His sermons blend well the horizons of the Bible and the contemporary culture scape. Even pastors who never try a monologue sermon will enjoy reading this book and be enriched by the monologues."
(from the Foreword by Dr. Raymond Bailey,
former faculty member,
Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky)
"The preacher who faces weekly the difficult task of speaking to a congregation is invariably in quest of help, and not only the kind to be sought in prayer. He or she is likely to have more than passing interest in the hermeneutical issues and to appreciate whatever springs of fresh water might well up from the sources of inspiration.
The work of Dr. Ed Thorn, Hoof 'N Mouth Disease, speaks exactly to the situation of the preacher with helpful insight into the task and some very concrete instances of how to do so creatively and interestingly... Dr. Thorn is well read in communication theory and has experimented successfully with narrative preaching... in which the preacher assumes a character from the Bible and imaginatively speaks from that perspective.
The book gives abundant samples of the approach, along with some models of how to incorporate the process into more traditional sermon structures as well. These monologue sermons contain much that is both bold and provocative, humorous and stirring."
Walter P. Weaver
Chairman, Humanities Division
Florida Southern College
"In a day when the laity are anxious to hear the biblical story and pastors are searching for creative ways to share the biblical story comes this delightful book of biblical monologues, Hoof 'N Mouth Disease, by Ed Thorn. It is classic."
David L. Brazelton
Superintendent, Tampa District United Methodist Church
