Product Description

Storyteller's Companion to the Bible, Vol. 2, is for anyone who would like to imaginatively and memorably retell great bible stories from Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, and Joshua. Whether you are a preacher, a Sunday school teacher, or a parent, you will discover in this book everything you need to dynamically retell many of the foundational stories of Jewish and Christian faiths. Through his insightful commentary, James C. Howell offers you essential background information on each story. And to help spur your imagination, four noted storytellers, including Michael E. Williams, offer their own retellings of Bible stories, using dramatic monologues, modern parables, changes in speaker, and other imaginative storytelling methods. The format of this book helps to guide you to a deeper understanding of biblical storytelling. First, the complete Revised English Bible text is presented, then James C. Howell's commentary is offered, then each story is retold in ancient or modern forms. You will discover within each retelling section midrashim, which are tidbits from Jewish rabbis, that offer interesting oral twists to the stories.
