In this highly useful book, pastor James Chapman invites clergy to use drama in the proclamation of the gospel. By adding simple dramas to sermons, Bible passages come alive. This worship aid offers seven example dramas that are ready to use, complete with lines, stage directions, list of characters, and needed props.
Drawing from both New and Old Testament texts, Chatham's dramas tell the stories of the persistent widow in Luke 18, of Rahab, and of Jonah; give testimony to the re-creative power of God, God's continued calling of God's people, and the import of the Easter story in modern contexts; and provide a lesson for discerning light from darkness.

The addition of simple drama to sermons is effective in bringing Bible passages alive and involving a variety of church members in preaching. In this book, James Chatham invites clergy to develop a use of drama to proclaim the gospel. Chatham writes that the Bible is comprised primarily of stories--stories of the relationship between God and God's people spanning over more than a thousand years--many of which are so good that they need little explanation. There is no more engaging way to tell these stories, he says, than through effective sermon drama.
