    I think the author makes a lot of really good points in this book when it comes to being familiar with scriptures I was especially interested in using the ideas in here for teaching LDS seminary I want to be a good story teller There is great power that comes from a story that can relate to scripture.

    A great teaching and guide for creating innovative worship environments for a restless culture that desires experience and being a part of the story.

    Miller asks a new question How do we meet and intersect with our youth and their experiences In a world that questions facts, and where new experiences are needed in order to keep our youth engaged, there needs to be a shift in teaching styles This book provides any leader with every step that is needed to make a change Everything from teaching outlines, how to provide an experiential setting for learning, and how to engage every thinking and learning style after the narrative is read is inc Miller asks a new question How do we meet and intersect with our youth and their experiences In a world that questions facts, and where new experiences are needed in order to keep our youth engaged, there needs to be a shift in teaching styles This book provides any leader with every step that is needed to make a change Everything from teaching outlines, how to provide an experiential setting for learning, and how to engage every thinking and learning style after the narrative is read is included and can be used for life application.Miller suggests that experiences, which are interactive and relational, should be the basis for ministry as it will engage and educate Even with all of this, there is somethingThis type of ministry places trust in the learner so that they can wrestle with the narrative and derive meaning that speaks to their experiences This is the beauty in teaching from a story foundation It allows for teaching to becomemissional it allows teachers to teach like missionaries do By engaging their culture, speaking their language, and becoming apart of their community, personal experiences are enabled and there is a greater emotional attachment to Jesus story.He asks a very poignant question Do we trust our people and the Holy Spirit enough to allow them to think for themselves From a jr high standpoint, are we willing to allow experiences to begin and form without seeing the fruit of our work Are we willing to allow the high school, or young adult ministry to be the final stages in personal decision to follow and live like Jesus Experiential Storytelling is just that creating experience from sharing our story and,importantly, God s story with those around us This book is a must own for any leader that wants to teach from a storying perspective as it will provide guidance, application, and insight into this wonderful form of communicating

    This book has been great at getting me to rethink how to prepare talks and add stories to the mix I wish there had been somepractical examples based on specific bible passages or examples which can be used within a specific talk.That being said, the book has really gotten me to rethink the bible stories and figure out how to make them feel real to people How to get a group of teens or adults to experience that they are a part of the story.The example that continues to stay on my mind is This book has been great at getting me to rethink how to prepare talks and add stories to the mix I wish there had been somepractical examples based on specific bible passages or examples which can be used within a specific talk.That being said, the book has really gotten me to rethink the bible stories and figure out how to make them feel real to people How to get a group of teens or adults to experience that they are a part of the story.The example that continues to stay on my mind is bringing teens together to re enact the Jesus story by blindfolding everyone for an entire evening until they find a Jesus character who saves them

    I was not prepared for my mind to be blown when I looked over at our shelf and picked out one of Jessica s books I ve never noticed before I can not wait to see how God uses experiential storytelling in my life The author gives some great back story on the history of preaching and how our postmodern culture thrives with experiences and the teaching that follows Youth pastors and volunteers, pick up this book and read it.

    I liked this book because it was about things that are out of the box Some of the things here may bethan what I would put into practice, but the overall point was to encourage creativity in the church, which is a good thing.
