A fantastic resource for youth workers. God, the Great Storyteller, chose to communicate with us through story – in fact a great library of stories, filled with heroes, villains, sex, violence, intrigue, sacrifice and redemption. The Think Tank gives young people an opportunity to meet that incredible Bible narrative – perhaps for the first time. This book contains 100 stories designed to provoke discussion, followed by penetrating questions which relate the stories to biblical bedrock. The stories are in four parts: • WOULD YOU BELIEVE IT? – Unbelievable stories, all absolutely true! • INSPIRING INDIVIDUALS – Stories of celebrities, public figures and other people of note making a positive difference. • WHAT WOULD YOU DO? – Ethics explored through stories, many based on real events. • AT THE MOVIES – A major bonus: 25 movie clips that pack a punch with young people, and all the background and questions you’ll need to facilitate discussion around them.
Martin Saunders has wide experience of developing resources and materials for youth work and is the author of over ten books, including Youth Work from Scratch and The Ideas Factory. He is the Deputy Chief Executive for Christian charity, Youthscape. Prior to that he was the editor of Youthwork magazine and founder of Childrenswork magazine and the Youthwork Summit.
