Who doesn't love a good story? Storytellers who excel at their craft have the ability to draw readers or listeners into the worlds they create, using characters and situations to entertain and enlighten us. Jesus, the Master Storyteller, often spoke using parables -- short stories that conveyed spiritual truths. By drawing his listeners into his stories, he unlocked their minds and hearts to hear the truth he was relating to them.

This compilation of stories for the entire church year, written by Peter Andrew Smith, follows in that same tradition. The stories within CSS Publishing's latest Lectionary Stories for Preaching and Teaching are inspired by the source gospel passages and serve to highlight and illustrate the gospel Jesus taught through his words and life. They can serve as a companion when studying the scripture, as illustrations for sermons, and as devotional material for personal or group use. Smith offers thought-provoking contemplations on Cycle C lectionary passages that draw out the biblical theme by relating it to aspects of modern life we have all experienced.

This book may be used for:

• Preaching illustrations

• Sermon starters

• Stand-alone sermons

• Teaching aids

• Inspirational devotional reading

Some chapters included in this volume:

• When Tomorrow Comes

• Ready to Welcome

• The Sound of Good News

• God's Grace Makes Anything Possible

• Welcoming God's Love
