The addition of simple drama to sermons is effective in bringing Bible passages alive and involving a variety of church members in preaching. In this book, James Chatham invites clergy to develop a use of drama to proclaim the gospel. Chatham writes that the Bible is comprised primarily of stories--stories of the relationship between God and God's people spanning over more than a thousand years--many of which are so good that they need little explanation. There is no more engaging way to tell these stories, he says, than through effective sermon drama.

James O. Chatham is Pastor Emeritus of Highland Presbyterian Church in Louisville, Kentucky and former Chair of the Louisville Human Relations Commission. In 2008, he was honored with Louisville's Martin Luther King Jr. Freedom Award for his work for civil rights. He is the author of Sundays Down South: A Pastor's Stories.
