Item description for Let Me Tell You A Story Life Lessons From Unexpected Places And Unlikely People by Tony Campolo...

No one tells a story quite like Tony Campolo, the sociologist and preacher whose wit and wisdom have captivated and challenged readers for more than a decade. From his years of ministry, Campolo tells unforgettable stories of people and events from around the world. Through them all, from a street bum in Philadelphia to a hooker in Honolulu, readers "overhear" the truth about God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and the Christian life.

Publishers Description

Vivid. Passionate. Witty. Poignant. No one tells a story like Tony Campolo.

Why stories? Stories have the power to sneak up on us, catch us unaware, and in the process draw us closer to our fellow human beings . . . and to God. And when Tony Campolo tells a story, we are captivated and entertained by the amazing characters and situations he describes.You'll laugh (or wince) at how one particular missions offering was raised.You'll feel the tragedy of a friend Tony didn't stand up for.You'll thrill to the "Sunday's comin' " sermon.You'll be moved when you learn about the childhood event that caused Bishop Tutu to become a priest.

These are stories of hope, doubt, faith, failure, and triumph. Of people standing up for justice, showing mercy, and living for God. But don't just expect to be entertained by Tony Campolo-though you will be. He just might change your heart and your life's priorities.

Listen well. You might overhear God talking to you.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about Let Me Tell You A Story Life Lessons From Unexpected Places And Unlikely People?

Worth every single penny!  Jan 9, 2007
I could not put the book down. Now that I'm finished, I look forward to reading it again! The stories are humorous, inspirational, memorable and touching. Most importantly however the stories are wonderful illustrations of the Kindgom of God at work here on earth. They provide a highly effective way of communicating the Christian faith without being "preachy".
grubedoo  Jan 22, 2006
A very inspiring book that doesn't give any step-by-step, how to instructions to bettering one's religion, nor make harsh judgements of right and wrong. It is one man's stories and experiences that shape a unique and beautiful spirituality. There are lessons to be learned between the lines and insightfulness and challenges on every page but they come in the form of stories which make them delectably palatable.
Wonderful book great messages  Sep 21, 2005
Tony Campolo is a minister of great note and his book brings across the message so very well. Thank you Tony for this wonderful book
Pure Campolo....but with an error  Aug 16, 2005
This book is fun, but as another said--not as good as hearing him in person.

A correction, however. Mohandas K. Gandhi (the Mahatma) was born in India, educated in England, and struggled against apartheid in South Africa before returning to India to begin his Satygraha movement. He was jailed in South Africa for various civil disobedient acts. Gandhi was a Hindu: not a Jain, not a Buddhist. He was not related to the Nehru family (Indira Gandhi was Nehru's daughter), nor to the Kashmiri Gandhi family Indira married into.
I Finally Got a Chance to Read It  Jun 27, 2005
I bought this book a few months ago, but my wife snatched it up. When I finally got a chance to read it, I found that it was what I expected.

Tony Campolo has been a travelling evangelist for years. His sermons are peppered with interesting stories that illustrate the points he tries to make. This book contains all or most of those that he routinely uses in sermons.

The reader will find most stories interesting and several stories awesome. It's a great collection of stories, but it's not the same as hearing Tony tell them in person.
