Publisher's Summary

The "Been there, done that" culture is starving for reality. Hardly satisfied with the modern conventions of citing facts and figures and pushing propositions, emerging churches are jumping into the narrative form of communication with both feet. But not all emerging church leaders have an inherent handle on the craft and skill of using narrative as a sermon form. Experiential Storytelling zeros in on the hows and whys of narrative, as well as the importance of sharing personal experience to double your storytelling ammunition. In addition, author Mark Miller goes several steps further, giving examples of real-time, hands-on experiences for church members as innovative extensions of traditional teaching and preaching that offer them greater scriptural understanding and ownership of the gospel story.

    "Horrible Narration"

    The content was good. If you want to know the content, buy the hard copy. In my opinion, this book loses all credibility.

    "okay book, PAINFUL narration"

    The book was okay. I am a teacher and believe in the power of story. His point is very good, I just didn't find there was a lot I could walk away with. After reading it, I can't see how it will impact my ministry in any concrete ways. Maybe because he is preaching to the choir here as I already love stories, though haven't done the form he is referring to in his teen weekends. My only gripe really is the narration. It is PAINFUL. I ended up putting it on 2x speed just because I found it so excruciating to listen to. I probably could have enjoyed the book more if I was dealing the the fingernail on chalkboard effect of the narration.

    "no substance, just bland information"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    if it actually taught how to tell a story


    Would you ever listen to anything by Mark Miller again?

    nope


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    there is no saving this book it was so bad even the best narrator wouldn't save this trash.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    nope


    Any additional comments?

    this audio book is horrible, its just some guy spending 5 of the 6 chapters telling you the history of storytelling and why you should implement it into your church serman, then he gives some very vauge ideas as to how to actually tell a story. i learned nothing and came out feeling as if i was royally ripped off. if you buy this book, you will regret it.
