If you are struggling with the "traditional" ways of communicating Bible stories with your congregation, Randy Quinn offers an intriguing solution in his new book. Voices Overheard provides dramatic portrayals of Biblical characters sharing their experiences in the form of sermons. These stories can serve as complements and inspiration for new perspectives on familiar stories, allowing you to creatively explore well-known stories and bring a bit of dramatic flair to the pulpit.
Quinn's book offers character monologues for Lent, Advent and ordinary time Lectionary texts, allowing viewers a glimpse into the minds of familiar Biblical characters, from Joseph, the Father of Jesus, to Sosthenes, who worked closely with Paul during his time in Corinth. This plausible fiction allows for smoother sermon preparation and gets your congregation more invested in the stories being told. See how this volume can spur your own ideas and even possibly motivate you to compose a few of your own character perspectives.
