In Story, Jay Martinson uses a variety of narrative examples to demonstrate the power stories can wield when told in timely, relevant, and clever ways. The tips and instructions found in Story will be useful to Christian leaders who hope to evangelize, instruct, or mentor others for the sake of the gospel.Each chapter ends with questions for discussion or reflection to help readers engage the text and learn to apply the book's principles to their individual contexts.
