Publishers Description 'Postle Jack Tales are stories written in the dialect of an earlier day, set in the mountains of Appalachia, with characters that come from all segments of society. Sometimes these stories seem very realistic, as if they could have happened in some forgotten pocket of our society just a few years ago. At other times, the stories seem fantastic, almost magical, as is to be expected in folktales. In each story the characters struggle with choices and consequences, good and bad behaviors, failures and disappointments, hopes and successes. These original tales are based on gospel parables and other stories from the biblical and spiritual tradition, each one emerging from a biblical text. These stories capture the heart of the parables Jesus told and engage the imagination of the reader in a way that speaks to their own heart's deep longing for spiritual truth. People of faith will find in these stories an opportunity to engage scripture in small discussion groups or in their own personal devotional life. The Tales are engaging stories to share with children, carrying a deep message of moral and ethical living within the global community. Pastors will find new and delightful approaches to time-worn and familiar parables, encouraging their own creative approaches to storytelling and sermon development. Storytellers will find in them memorable characters and storylines that appeal to listeners of all ages. 'Postle Jack Tales are spiritual study for the serious scholar who wants to engage faith and scripture from a fresh perspective, spiritual nourishment for the devoted person of faith looking for fables and parables to nurture the soul, and guides to spiritual action for those who are seekinga vision for moral and ethical decision-making in the home and family, in the workplace, and in the local and global community. Issues of faith and justice, economy and ethics come together in 'Postle Jack's adventures in an engaging and encouraging way.
