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 explore their world through stories, and to relate it to the incredible story of the Bible – perhaps for the first time. Here are 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. TALKING 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. This updated edition brings refreshed material that will speak to today’s young people.
