Abstract:

"The Preacher as Storyteller takes a skills-development approach to its timely lesson in homiletics. In short, author Austin B. Tucker reasons that 'you can greatly improve your preaching by sharpening your storytelling skills ... A story can touch the latch spring of the heart to let the life-changing gospel come in.' To that end, he focuses on the art of narrative, including how Jesus used it in the Bible. Tucker also stresses the importance of telling one's own conversion story, and he profiles ten legendary preachers who displayed a clear gift for illustrative and transformational storytelling in their ministry."--Publisher's Description.
