If teens can't speak the Christian language, they don't know the Christian story. If they don't know the Christian story, they don't know how Christians are supposed to live.
So what's her solution to this narrative deficiency? The idea of youth ministers as bards, or storytellers. Arthur reminds youth ministers that their primary task is to tell the Christian story, to reclaim the imagination as part of spiritual formation, and to reclaim the church as God's ongoing story. This book would be insightful for all ministers, not only those who work with youth. It can help us make a significant shift in the way we think about and approach ministry in the postmodern world.

Jesus told open-ended stories that can linger like time bombs in our imaginations. We act, N. If you tend to think of a story as something already completed, then perhaps drama is a better metaphor for living the good news. The biblical drama shows who God is and what God does.
It gives us the opening acts and reveals the ending—the entire fallen cosmos restored so that Christ is all, and is in all. But God is still writing the next to last act. Doctrine gives us theatrical direction. The Holy Spirit helps us stay faithful to the script while we improvise gospel performances in new cultural scenes. God could accomplish all this without us yet chooses to involve us in demonstrating his generous love.
