Item description for Tales and Prayers for New Life in Christ: Multiple-Use Life-Enriching Stories by Karl Evans...

Overview
What is a story? Is it simple communication, a way to relay information about an event? Is there more to a story than that? In fact, stories are powerful. They not only inspire our imagination, but they also serve as a connection with our past, preserving core events in our history. Stories can create a feeling of community, bonding people together in a common history. They reveal truths to us that would otherwise remain hidden. Sometimes we cannot grasp a notion until it is revealed in a story. From the story of our birth to our newspaper obituary, stories are the fabric of our lives. It is no wonder that Jesus taught us using parables, defined in the introduction as "simple translations of the unfathomable word of God into human language." Like other stories in our lives, Jesus' parables offer humanity hope and enlightenment. Consequently, stories have pervaded our worship of God, the master storyteller. Through sermons, prayers, and hymns, the grand tale of God's relationship with humanity is retold every Sunday. It is in this spirit that Tales and Prayers for New Life in Christ is given. Each story, complete with a synopsis, a link to the liturgical calendar, and a corresponding scripture, offers us a glimpse into the mystery of life and faith. These stories, including "Angie," "Bullpen Mud," and "A Vision of Peace," can be used in sermons, small group discussions, or even as a complement to personal prayer and reflection. It is suitable for congregations, families, friends, and individuals. Let each tale lay down the foundation on which you create a story of your own.

Reviews - What do customers think about Tales and Prayers for New Life in Christ?

Stories to define and enrich our lives.  Mar 14, 2008
In all lands, all cultures, all ages, humans love a story. In fact, our brains are constructed to effortlessly understand narrative. The greatest teachers intuitively taught using the story: Jesus did with parables, Socrates with dialogues and Buddha with his spiritual and physical journey. So, tell us a story. It resonates with us. I get it. We get it.

Karl gives us stories to define and enrich our lives. Most are true stories, some are parables and some are told via poetry. Karl keeps our attention and strengthens our faith. Thanks Karl. Good job. Give us more.
