Item description for Lectionary Tales for the Pulpit: Series V, Cycle C by Gregory L. Tolle...

Overview
Whether it's bedtime stories for young children, scary tales around the campfire, or shared narratives from the "electronic hearth" of television, stories are a primary mode of human communication. For preachers, they're a key part of the homiletic toolbox -- captivating stories are an essential way to connect with listeners and capture their attention. Jesus knew this -- he was a master storyteller, and in his sermons he didn't lecture, he told parables to illustrate his message and help his audience remember important points. With Lectionary Tales For The Pulpit, you'll have an invaluable source of fresh, imaginative stories right at your fingertips. Gregory Tolle sheds new light on Cycle C lectionary texts with modern parables that take you inside scripture in memorable and inspiring ways. Tolle's thought-provoking reflections remind us that God's grace is always present in our daily lives, especially in places and events we least expect to find it. This book isn't just a collection of preaching illustrations and "sermon starters" -- it's also powerfully uplifting devotional reading that's certain to enrich your spiritual life.
