Creative Ideas To Tell A Bible Story
Full Product Description
Drawing on the extensive work of the team at special events, in schools and with churches across the UK, Creative Ways to tell a Bible Story contains a wealth of tried and tested ideas designed to lift any Bible story off the page and into the hearts and minds of children and adults.
The resource offers a treasure trove of ideas for opening up a Bible story (the way in), telling the story (the way through) and exploring the meaning of the story (the way out), including suggestions for reflecting on how to apply the story to our lives today.
In addition, there is a selection of over 30 key words or phrases offering ways in which connecting threads might be explored, a suggested year's programme using the Bible stories explored in the book, and a chronological index of all the Bible stories mentioned designed to enable users to find material for a particular children's session, special event, workshop or all-age church service.
Creative Ideas To Tell A Bible Story by Martyn Payne was published by Barnabas in March 2013 and is our 2065th best seller. The ISBN for Creative Ideas To Tell A Bible Story is 9780857461131.

Creative Ways to tell a Bible StoryPam Sanders, via The Good Book Stall
Section 1: The Way In. Of the ideas presented, I found 'Getting into Character' the most helpful as this is possible to achieve in assemblies, which is where I tell the stories.
The Bible Box is a variant on the treasure box I used to use, which is very effective. Most people should be able to find at least one method which works for them.
Section 2: The Way through. Know the story: "only when it has come alive again for me can I hope to bring it to life for those who are listening" [p.44]. Again, there should be a method in the suggested ones which resonates; responses based on sounds or actions, walking the story, bringing a picture to life or acting the story out together, are some of the helpful suggestions.
Section 3: The Way Out. Good selection of ideas to use together to "explore and reflect" on the story, rather than the storyteller saying "...and this is what it means". Over time, eacch person may develop different techniques, combining ideas to help to explore the story's relevance / resonance to those who have heard it.
Worth adding to the library.
