Drawing on his extensive experience of engaging young and old alike, master storyteller Bob Hartman takes two readings for each week or special day from the Revised Common Lectionary and shows fresh ways to bring them to life. We all long to enjoy the Bible - to savour it and taste its sweetness. Yet often we do not do it justice, as there are particular challenges to enjoying it in community, read aloud as part of our worship. Although this is how much of the Bible was originally shared, our experience of hearing it read can often seem far from sweet. To bring the Scriptures to life we need to spend time with the text, tasting and enjoying it ourselves, and understanding what we are presenting and to whom. Then comes the opportunity for creativity to add a spark as we encounter God's word together. Hartman demonstrates this with his characteristic flair.

Bob Hartman is a performance storyteller par excellence. He has been entertaining audiences on both sides of the Atlantic for over 25 years with his books and performances, which bring together retellings of Bible stories and traditional tales from around the world with his own imaginative stories.

His books are full of humour and insight, whilst his storytelling sessions are exciting, engaging, dynamic – and above all, interactive!

He is well known for his hugely popular The Lion Storyteller books, the Telling the Bible series, and the highly acclaimed picture books: The Wolf Who Cried Boy, Dinner in the Lions' Den and The Three Billy Goats' Stuff.
