This is a unique book that brings to life stories in the Bible. It also gives instructions on how to put these stories into actions through the means of props and costumes; items which are easy to obtain and inexpensive.
I have had the luxury of seeing these stories performed in a church setting and I found this method of Bible presentation helpful in not only understanding the different characters in the Old Testament, but also in being able to apply the characters and stories into a reflection of my own life.
Well done book!

Rev. Todd Farnsworth has written a book of plays based on Old Testament characters which make the stories come off the page in new and compelling ways. Farnsworth's delightful imagination envisions the stories with faith, creativity, and wit. Discussion questions are included at the end of each skit to facilitate discussion. Farnsworth also includes staging and costume suggestions which are quick and easy, and make these skits appealing for a busy pastor to stage. He includes a theological introduction of drama as a means to share the gospel. Highly recommended- looking forward to the New Testament version. Fun to read and full of creative ideas - our church will definitely be using this book!
