Stories aren’t just for kids: Busting 10 myths

Announcing new booklet – Stories aren’t just for kids: Busting 10 myths about Bible storytelling

I have been training people in Bible storytelling since about 2008. During trainings the same objections to using storytelling keep coming up. Stories aren’t just for kids: Busting 10 myths about Bible storytelling was written to tackle the most common objections.

This book is different to my other books as it is written as a ‘taster’ to my non-fiction. It is meant to be free and it is meant to stay that way. So on all distributors, apart from Amazon, it is free. It is also only currently in ebook form and I’d love you to share it with others. Pass on the link as widely as you can. In the back are links to more resources about Bible storytelling …

Book blurb

In a world increasingly anti-Christian, how can you communicate in a way that slides under listener’s defences? How can you leave them hungry for more?
Stories are God-designed way to impact hearts.
But many Christians reject stories as just for kids. Christine Dillon has trained thousands of people in storytelling. 10 myths come up over and over again, and they block Christians from using this life-changing ministry tool.
MYTH 1: Adults won’t listen to stories
MYTH 2: Stories are only for non-literate cultures
MYTH 3: Men won’t listen to stories …
MYTH 6: Storytelling won’t grow mature disciples
MYTH 8: Storytelling will lead to heresy …

Using stories from around the world Dillon tackles each myth and challenges you to master this tool.

Christine Dillon is a Bible storyteller and trainer who works in Asia and Australia. Her book, Telling the Gospel Through Story: Evangelism that keeps hearers hungry for more (IVP, 2012) has inspired many to start telling the greatest story of them all.
