Publishers Description We've never seen plays more creative, more dynamic than these. Though all the dramas have their origins in Scripture, they are more than just biblical re-enactments -- each has an innovative spin guaranteed to win over even the most challenging audience. The story of Job is told through the eyes of Joe Bob, a native Texan with Texas-sized troubles. Pontius Pilate's Press Conference features a pack of feisty reporters, including Bryant Gumbo, Tom Brokejaw, Walter Crankcase and Diane Sawhorse, who interrogate Pilate after the Crucifixion. The other scripts included are: Feerce, Penner, and Smith; The Man Who Had It Made; The General Takes a Dip; Good Ol' Sam; The Catfish and the Bookworm; Midnight Cholrboys and The Great Escape. Guaranteed fun -- all the plays have been performance tested. They are ideal for church fellowship dinners, youth gatherings, as fundraisers and for special church services. Each script features a delightful cartoon illustration by the author that may be reproduced and used by church groups on programs and promotion posters. You'll love the economizing -- the price includes permission to reproduce the scripts and perform the plays royalty-free for the group that purchases the book.

To be,or not to be, Divine:) Sep 21, 2000
This book was very useful in order to look at different points of view taken by the auther about christianity in a theatre based approch.This novel per say was more how to be a christian in theatre and examples of pieces of script to base the opinions on.Acturally throughout the whole book you can find very interesting pieces of work,and why it was chosen.This book is great for young to old readers of the christian faith or not,although I do recomend younger readers to have a parent along to explain some of the text.I give this book 3 out of 5 stars.
