Storytelling/Preaching 101 Apr 27, 2009
Yuck! I was really hoping and anticipating more than how to tell a good story in the pulpit. Where were the examples? Where was the first hand account of a faith journey? The book left me sorely wishing for something more and that I had not wasted my money, time, effort and energies in reading a textbook on Preaching/Storytelling 101. What a disappointment.
