Book Review: Experiential Storytelling

Experiential Storytelling: (Re) Discovering Narrative to Communicate God's Message (Emergent YS)Experiential Storytelling: by Mark Miller

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

i've been drawn to the theme Story for some time now. I've struggled to figure out how to implement 'story' more into my youth ministry.
Experiential Storytelling didn't tell me anything i didn't already know or hadn't already thought of. but it did confirm in me the desire to implement a more interactive process to storytelling - particularly the stories of the Bible.

Mark Miller's book was an easy, quick read - with larger print and plenty of quotes.

if you are intrigued with the idea of storytelling or 'storying' as another author has put it - this book is good for you.

i am already planning on implementing more story into our weekly youth gatherings staring in the fall.

Did you ever read Story by Steven James? Highly recommended by the folks over at Defy The Gray. Not so much a how to, but rather one where you learn from the story he weaves and tells.
