Publisher's Description

"Greg Tolle knows how to tell a story Lectionary Tales For The Pulpit is not only a wonderful read -- it's like standing in front of floor-to-ceiling windows through which you can see the majesty of the created world beyond. Tolle's work enables readers to grasp the heart of the text and gives every preacher an invaluable start in his or her sermon preparation "
Timothy Merrill
Executive Editor, "Homiletics"
Whether it's bedtime stories for young children, scary tales around the campfire, or shared narratives from the "electronic hearth" of television, stories are a primary mode of human communication. For preachers, they're a key part of the homiletic toolbox -- captivating stories are an essential way to connect with listeners and capture their attention. Jesus knew this -- he was a master storyteller, and in his sermons he didn't lecture, he told parables to illustrate his message and help his audience remember important points.
With "Lectionary Tales For The Pulpit," you'll have an invaluable source of fresh, imaginative stories right at your fingertips. Gregory Tolle sheds new light on Cycle C lectionary texts with modern parables that take you inside scripture in memorable and inspiring ways.

Boyce A. Bowdon

Oklahoma Conference, United Methodist Church
"Grounded in real human experience, Lectionary Tales For The Pulpit is insightful reading that helps bring the biblical witness to light week after week. It's a wonderful devotional guide for thoughtful Christians of any persuasion, even the occasional preacher who happens to be in a "homiletic drought.""
