Synopses & Reviews
Dr. Edward Thorn, pastor and professor of communications, has written a series of wonderful Biblical monologues, the purest form of preaching, and gives other preachers and speakers advice on delivery so that we can bring them to life
Storytelling is older than the Bible. The Bible consists of stories that arose out of an oral tradition, and Jesus was a master storyteller. The monologue is a form of preaching that captures the eyes, ears, and brains of the congregation. Stories and actions are more easily recalled than propositions or paralleled points in a sermon. Mention any character in the Bible and people will see a mental image of a favorite story, not the theme of a moralistic sermon. This book will help pastors use the monologue form to connect with their congregation in a vital and vibrant way.
