As a seminary student Jerry Eckert listened to his seminary professor, Dr. W.J.A. Power, encourage his students to realize how much of scripture is story. "Let that reality enter your preaching," he instructed them.

Jerry Eckert became a master storyteller and began writing church members' voices into his story sermons. The result of this involvement on the part of the congregation became a source of joy and fascination to both young and old at "sermon time."

Have you tried preaching story sermons? If you are interested in learning more ways in which this preaching style can be used, this book will become the most useful resource in your library.

For preacher or layperson, for casual reader or serious Bible student, In the Carpenter's Workshop is fascinating... God's grace shows up in every story, even in the Old Testament.
