    Anyone Can Tell a Bible Story

    Bob's Guide to Storytelling - With 35 Great Stories

    Bob Hartman has an enviable reputation as a performance storyteller. Here are his insights into how stories work, tips and techniques, and how to retell Bible stories--plus 35 great stories to practice on.

    "Biblical storytelling can do one of two things," says Bob Hartman. "It can excite and inspire and create a thirst for more.
    Or it can bore and embarrass and leave a group with a sad sense of 'so what?' And that's an important difference, if you believe, as I do, that those stories contain something essential about who we are and who God is." Good storytelling, he explains, comes from blending your own passion, wit, and creativity with skill. This book shares the secrets of that skill, including:

    o The four relationships at the heart of biblical storytelling

    o How stories work

    o How to take a Bible story to pieces, and recast it to compel the listener's attention
