Noting theater's reflection of important Christian themes such as incarnation and community, the writers show how theatre can engage viewers on political, social, religious, intellectual, emotional, and kinesthetic levels. In doing so Christians are encouraged to celebrate and embrace the dramatic stories of the human experience while engaging the dramatic accounts of God's people found in Scripture. A provocative and persuasive argument for live performance in a virtual world.
