Speaking in Stories: Resources for Christian Storytellers
Augsburg Books, 1 de jan. de 1982 - 125 páginas
Why do we all like a good story? Stories give us joy, hope, visions of wonderful grace at work, says William White. But how can we learn to tell Christian stories? How can we find good story ideas? How can we make our stories interesting? Speaking in Stories is full of practical ideas on how to begin, what to avoid, how to use stories in classrooms, camps, churches. White's many examples of stories -- from the Bible, folktales, modern parables, for Christmas -- serve as a valuable resource as you weave your tales.

Página 41 - Sing us one of the songs of Zion!" How shall we sing the Lord's song in a foreign land? If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand wither! Let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth, if I do not remember you, if I do not set Jerusalem above my highest joy! Remember, O Lord, against the Edomites the day of Jerusalem, how they said, "Raze it, raze it! Down to its foundations!
Página 43 - He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God...
Página 44 - I make a decree, that in every dominion of my kingdom, men tremble and fear before the God of Daniel : for he is the Living God, and stedfast for ever, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed, and his dominion shall be even unto the end. He delivereth and rescueth, and he worketh signs and wonders in heaven and in earth, who hath delivered Daniel from the power of the lions.
Página 45 - How many of my father's hired men have food to spare, and here I am starving to death! I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired men.
Página 42 - Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. If it be so, our GOD whom we serve is able to deliver from the burning fiery furnace : and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.
Página 105 - Through all the wonderful, eventful centuries since Christ's time — and long before that — God has cared for these trees, saved them from drought, disease, avalanches, and a thousand straining, leveling tempests and floods ; but he cannot save them from fools, — only Uncle Sam can do that.
Página 43 - Praise be to the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who has sent his angel and rescued his servants! They trusted in him and defied the king's command and were willing to give up their lives rather than serve or worship any god except their own God.
Página 15 - My grandfather was lame. Once they asked him to tell a story about his teacher. And he related how the holy Baal-Shem used to hop and dance while he prayed. My grandfather rose as he spoke, and he was so swept away by his story that he himself began to hop and dance to show how the master had done. From that hour on he was cured of his lameness. That's the way to tell a story!
Página 43 - Any people, nation, or language that speaks anything against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego shall be torn limb from limb, and their houses laid in ruins; for there is no other god who is able to deliver in this way.
Página 105 - Any fool can destroy trees. They cannot run away ; and if they could, they would still be destroyed, — chased and hunted down as long as fun or a dollar could be got out of their bark hides, branching horns, or magnificent bole backbones.
