Drawing on his extensive experience of engaging young and old alike, master storyteller Bob Hartman takes two readings for each week or special day from the Revised Common Lectionary and shows fresh ways to bring them to life. We all long to enjoy the Bible - to savour it and taste its sweetness. Yet often we do not do it justice, as there are particular challenges to enjoying it in community, read aloud as part of our worship. Although this is how much of the Bible was originally shared, our experience of hearing it read can often seem far from sweet. To bring the Scriptures to life we need to spend time with the text, tasting and enjoying it ourselves, and understanding what we are presenting and to whom. Then comes the opportunity for creativity to add a spark as we encounter God's word together. Hartman demonstrates this with his characteristic flair.
