Six Biblical Plays for Contemporary Audiences June 14, 2016 By Collegeville Institute Robin Gallaher Branch Cascade Books, 2016 Visit this title on the publisher's website » This book contains six biblically-based, thoroughly researched plays for a general audience that are fun, imaginative and engaging. It… Fills a Need: For biblically based, thoroughly researched plays for a general audience. Is Fun: Laugh as members of the body of Christ sing and dance their way into your church. See others–and maybe yourself!–in the kindness of Heart, the gossip of Ear, the pride of Head, and the independence of Eye. Honors Women: Lets Mary tell Joseph of the angel Gabriel’s visit. Recognizes Elizabeth’s importance; she tells Luke 1 from her perspective. Is Funny: Human beings get in fixes and messes. Watch how God–with gentleness, humor, and tough love–delivers his people time and again. Encourages Participation: Suitable for actors ages nine to ninety-nine! Fosters Dialogue: Each play ends with Questions for Discussion. Shows Theology in the Making: Do theology the Godly way–with boots on the ground! Consider this evangelism model: The disciples have just seen the risen Lord Jesus ascend into heaven and can’t wait to tell all Jerusalem! Invites Imagination: The characters in Proverbs gather in the marketplace and tell Simple Youth, a first-year university student, about their lifestyles. Which will he follow? Promotes This Concept: We all play our lives on stage to an audience of One: God. Like this post? Subscribe to have new posts sent to you by email the same day they are posted.
