The Sermon on the Mt Morgan Pub Verandah and other Twisted Tales from the Life of Jesus: Drama
In the days of kings Josiah and Zedekiah, when Israelite affluence had made them deaf to the prophetic preaching of the prophets. When the people had forgotten how to blush. What did the Lord command Jeremiah and Ezekiel to do to shake Israel from their slumber? Get Dramatic! Through shattered pottery, decaying belts and naked walks through the city, the Prophets of God would get the message across. In our days of affluence and apathy the dramatic once again becomes an effective means to proclaim the Word of God. This book re-enfleshes the Word as it creatively and humourously reenacts scenes from Jesus' life. The sermon on the mount, delivered on a pub veranda; Jesus' temptation as Reality TV; a mob boss cancelling a debt. The message will be heard afresh by adults and young people alike.
