Product Description

The author of Thespian Theology: The Parables Of Jesus As One-Act Plays follows up that popular title with an all-new collection of fun and enlightening sketches based on Cycle A lectionary readings for the Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany seasons. The offbeat humor of TenBrook's scenes is a great way to share the Gospel - audiences will laugh while they are stimulated to look at the scriptual message in a new light. Originally developed for presentation by a high school-age youth group, these versatile pieces can be used in place of the Sunday sermon or for youth programs and other fellowship settings - and these simple, easy-to-perform sketches are an excellent tool for reaching out to unchurched people and getting them excited about Jesus Christ.

Each skit is accompanied by a page of "Thespian Theological Thoughts" that briefly makes an explicit connection between the drama and the scripture passage. It's just what you need to inject a healthy dose of fun into the serious business of speaking and hearing the Word of God.
