Why Story Matters

It's one thing to learn theology, it's another thing to hear how people experience the love, grace, mercy, and provision of God in their day to day life. Listening or reading other people's stories builds our faith. Telling our story builds the faith of others. In fact, it turns answered prayer into praise.

I was reminded of that recently when I read Case for Grace for Kids  and The Case for Grace Student Edition: A Journalist Explores the Evidence of Transformed Lives by Lee Strobel. Both books share story after story of lives transformed by grace. Through the experiences of ordinary people, the author builds a case for grace, explaining what it really is, and how it sets Christianity apart from other religions.

I'd love for you to join me over at Faith Gateway where I talk about how stories have impacted my life and five reasons why I think story matters.
