An engaging look at how our life stories can enable us to tell the gospel in a way that connects effectively with people. Jesus was the master storyteller, powerfully relating accessible stories to convey the good news, and Steve Morris calls us to reclaim the art of storytelling in the church today. In a world of increasing social fragmentation and loneliness, this book demonstrates how listening to others can be transformational. When we truly hear people's stories, we begin to feel wonder at life and the way God is at work, and those telling their stories start to feel a sense of belonging. Inspiring stories are grounded by practical ideas to put storytelling at the heart of the church, and questions in each chapter encourage us all to glimpse more of God, revel in our uniqueness and realise that we all have something unique to offer as his followers. Underpinned by practical pastoral experience, this is a book full of quirky and unexpected life stories that open us up afresh to the beauty of life and our God.
