This book is for preachers, teachers, youth workers, leaders of holiday and after school programs and all others who are gospel storytellers.
It focuses on the people whose relationships are reported in the gospel records: what they did, what they said and how they may have said it.
like us, these people knew joy and sorrow, elation and despair. They laughed, they cried, were fearful, surprised, astonished, annoyed, distressed and delighted.
By highlighting the emotions present in these stories, the story of Jesus' life, death and resurrection can come alive and become more gripping as we recount it, capturing the imagination of all hearing the story, whether afresh or for the first time.
Owen Shelley was a long time member of the Scripture Union staff. He has shared the gospel story with many thousands of people on the beaches, in schools, and from platforms and pulpits all over Australia. For him, the gospel events are 'the most beautiful story of all'.
