Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
As communicators in a culture saturated with storylines, we have the profound opportunity to invite our students into the masterful Story of God. There are a variety of ways to invite our students into this Story, but this book discusses and explores how to teach through one of Jesus' most powerful modes of communication--fictional storytelling. Rabbinical storytelling (otherwise known as Jewish Agada) embraces the narrative of Scripture and invites its listeners into understanding and participation. Our Rabbi, Jesus, employed this mode of communication through his parables. Approaching the topic as a theologian, philosopher and artist, Jon invites and teaches how to create modern-day parables that illuminate the message of Jesus. These stories do not simply illustrate the message; they are, in fact, the message. Whether hoping to articulate deep theological concepts or relevant topics, teaching through the art of fictional storytelling has the potential to engage and invite our students into The Story. In this book: *You will learn how to create your own fictional stories (modern day parables) that use a realistic setting, engaging characters and a thought provoking plot to communicate a specific topic. *You are given practical worksheets that offer guidance in developing such stories *Jon includes a variety of stories he has developed over his years of youth ministry and offers them as a resource to any youth pastor/communicator. "I found myself wrapped up in its pages and receiving personal learning. It's a rarity in youth ministry as it has the potential of impacting not only youth but also their youth leaders." --Dan Kimball - author of They Like Jesus but Not the Church

Path: Huckins outlines the teaching style of Jesus, the philosophy of story telling, and the structure of how to create a useful story. The end has several examples of his stories and then a summarization of his main points.
Sources: The author quotes individuals like N. T. Wright, Rob Bell, and Rodney Stark.
Agreement: I appreciated the author’s desire to minister to teenagers. I was encouraged by his boldness to discuss tough topics with those teenagers.
From the very beginning I was frustrated with the abundance of trendy terminology.
It seemed as thought the majority of his book focused on him.
His view of the Kingdom is weak.
Personal App: Am I interacting with others through stories? There is great communicative power in the story.
Favorite Quote: The illustration taken from one of his professors - a parable is like a puzzle. It “consists of many different pieces that come together to make one whole and comprehensive picture.”
5 out of 5 for the idea. 2 out of 5 for actual book
It isn’t worth another read but I would recommend the idea.
In my ten years as a youth pastor, the greatest success I experienced in teaching students was when I threw out the props and power point and just told God's story. Do yourself (and your youth group, Bible study, small group, children) a favor and read this book!
It's amazing that youth pastors and other spiritual teachers can spend so much time on other aspects of programming and even skill development while neglecting a serious process for storytelling. When we think about it we know that stories are what move us and inspire us. This book will help the reader value the art of storytelling and gain a new understanding and theology of storytelling as well as very practical resources and helps.
It's a wonderful book.
