The God-Hungry Imagination
The Art of Storytelling for Postmodern Youth Ministry
by Sarah Arthur | Genre: Youth Ministry
Release Date: October 2007
 

In the spirit of Kenda Creasy Dean and Ron Foster's classic resource The Godbearing Life (Upper Room Books, 1998), Sarah Arthur casts a new paradigm for youth ministry in which imagination and story take center stage. The God-Hungry Imagination: The Art of Storytelling for Postmodern Youth Ministry (Upper Room Books, Oct 2007) explores the role of imagination and narrative in spiritual formation, reframing the youth pastor as "resident bard" and both scripture and the church as "narratable" worlds into which youth are invited. In addition to theological reflections on imagination and story, this book draws upon tools of the storytelling trade found in literature and the arts (such as metaphor) and considers how these might equip the church"and its youth"for telling and living the gospel of Jesus through worship and discipleship.

"This is not a book that will simply inform you. Sarah Arthur's intent is to transform your soul and ministry, to help you re-envision your life in the light of the Gospel itself."

--From the foreword by Ron Foster and Kenda Creasy Dean
