Summary

John TenBrook follows up his popular CSS titles Thespian Theology: The Parables Of Jesus As One-Act Plays and Thespian Theology: Advent/Christmas/Epiphany, Cycle A with an all-new collection of fun and enlightening sketches based on Cycle A lectionary readings for Lent and Easter. The offbeat humor of TenBrook's scenes is a great way to share the Gospel -- audiences will laugh while they are stimulated to look at the scriptural message in a new light. Originally developed for presentation by a high school-age youth group, these versatile pieces can be used in place of the Sunday sermon or for youth programs and other fellowship settings -- and the simple, easy-to-perform sketches are an excellent tool for reaching out to unchurched people and getting them excited about Jesus Christ. Each skit is accompanied by "Thespian Theological Thoughts" that make a clear connection between the drama and the scripture passage. It's just what you need to inject a healthy dose of fun into the serious business of speaking and hearing the Word of God. Book jacket.
