Item description for Reconnecting God's Story to Ministry: Cross-Cultural Storytelling at Home and Abroad by Tom A. Steffen...

Overview
To help readers recapture the most natural, universal, and effective means of evangelism - discipleship that exists-storytelling.

Publishers Description
Oftentimes, we think stories are for children. But using the Bible as evidence, we see that God communicated His truth to men and women of all cultures, time, and places by way of many small stories forming one large story. While possessing a rich heritage of storytelling, too many evangelicals have forfeited this vital skill. Tom Steffen's aim is to help readers recapture the most natural, universal, and effective means of evangelism-discipleship that exists storytelling. This book is not just theory it provides practical help by identifying the roles and tasks that are necessary to become an effective storyteller in another culture. Steffen offers creative tools and introduces practical ways to increase many of the storytelling skills for evangelism-discipleship. He moves us beyond linear gospel outlines, Western logic and organization, and individual responses to traditional evangelism rituals, to a mode of communication that respects the audience, making it easy for them to grasp what they have heard and to pass it on to others with minimal loss of content. By reconnecting storytelling to ministry, readers will be more comfortable in sharing the gospel, both at home and abroad.

Reviews - What do customers think about Reconnecting God's Story to Ministry: Crosscultural Storytelling at Home and Abroad?

Trust the power of "story"  Apr 6, 2004
Dr. Steffen revisits the message of the Bible through the framework of "story." His perspectives are missiological, anthropological, and andragogical. He integrates the concepts of storybook, storyline, and storyteller, drawing from key narrativists, including Boomershine, Bradt, Brueggemann, Fackre, Leighton Ford, Donald Miller, and Ryken. Storying is a universal form of communication. Ryken argues that "...the narrative mode is uniquely important in Christianity" (1984:33). Dr. Steffen's book, though brief, is a scholarly work describing how to use narrative as an educational methodology. The book contains key questions and helpful bibliographies. I highly recommend this book as well as Dr. Steffen's "Passing the Baton."
