Item description for Thespian Theology Parables of by John A. Tenbrook...

Overview
Many congregations are searching for fresh approaches to telling the good news - and Thespian Theology is just what you need to inject a healthy dose of fun into the scriptural message. Twelve of Jesus' parables are depicted in a humorous, offbeat way in scripts that were originally developed for presentation by a high school-age youth group. While the plays are especially appropriate for adolescents, they also maintain a focus on the biblical text and will appeal to all ages. Pastors and youth leaders will discover that these simple, easy-to-perform sketches can be an excellent tool for reaching out to unchurched people and getting them excited about the gospel of Jesus Christ. Everyone who participates in (or witnesses a performance) of these sketches will enjoy them while learning about God in the process. Some of the amusing titles include: Who Is My Neighbor? or The Parable of the Good Geek (The Good Samaritan) Wilfred Wonderful's Weightless Wooden Widget Works (The Unforgiving Servant) Hey ... Who's in Charge Here? (The Laborers in the Vineyard) Irkum D. Judge, Esq. (The Judge and the Widow)

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.
