Description

TELL ME A STORY explores the story-shaped nature of our lives. We are born, live, and die within stories These stories shape how we see ourselves, the world, and our place in it. The first great storytellers in our lives are home, church, school, and popular culture. Knowing and embracing healthy stories are crucial to living rightly and well.

This book investigates the relationship between stories and meaning in life, the difference between character and personality, the ability of story to make connections between things, the power of story to bring about a desired future, how stories create community and a sense of belonging, and how broken stories can be healed.

Drawing on a wide range of stories-literary, popular, and personal. TELL ME A STORY offers profound insight, encouragement, and inspiration. It includes a series of questions designed to help readers identify the important stories in their own lives.
