Item description for Thespian Theology: Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Cycle a by John A. Tenbrook...

Overview
The author of Thespian Theology: The Parables Of Jesus As One-Act Plays follows up that popular CSS title with an all-new collection of fun and enlightening sketches based on Cycle A lectionary readings for the Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany seasons. The offbeat humor of TenBrook's scenes is a great way to share the Gospel -- audiences will laugh while they are stimulated to look at the scriptural message in a new light. Originally developed for presentation by a high school-age youth group, these versatile pieces can be used in place of the Sunday sermon or for youth programs and other fellowship settings -- and these simple, easy-to-perform sketches are an excellent tool for reaching out to unchurched people and getting them excited about Jesus Christ. Each skit is accompanied by a page of "Thespian Theological Thoughts" that briefly makes an explicit connection between the drama and the scripture passage. It's just what you need to inject a healthy dose of fun into the serious business of speaking and hearing the Word of God. Some of the amusing titles include: * N-o-o-o-t Exactly (Advent 1) * What's The Word? (Christmas) * Unfathomable Riches! No Assembly Required, Gentiles Included (Epiphany) * The Foolishness Of God (Epiphany 4)

Reviews - What do customers think about Thespian Theology?

These plays are so good!  May 11, 2007
I definitely recommend this book. The dialogue is great, the humor is absolutely hilarious, and most importantly, the messages are great. All the plays are based on the parables of Jesus and these plays can work with middle schoolers, high schoolers...even adults! John Tenbrook did a great job. I wish he would write more plays!
 
Good Book about the Good Book  May 5, 2005
I have read this book and find it amusing and teaching at the same time. Mr. TenBrook has put his talents to good use and the short plays are easy to understand and give a good message to both youth and grown-ups. I am going to use two of his short one-act plays with my adult singles group MOSAIC. The plays are easy to do, the lines are not to difficult to learn. We hope to fun with some improvisation, and get some group participation as the cast.
