Tell Me a Story: The Life-Shaping Power of Our Stories

Daniel Taylor
Bog Walk Press
ISBN 097065110

“You are your stories. You are the product of all the stories you have heard and lived – and of many that you have never heard. They have shaped how you see yourself, the world and your place in it. Your first great storytellers were home, school, popular culture, and, perhaps, church. Knowing and embracing healthy stories are crucial to living rightly and well. If your present life is broken or diseased, it can be made well. Or, if necessary, it can be replaced by a story that has a plot worth living.” Taylor, a professor of English, writes with great insight into how and why God uses story. Wisely, he has also created a book that is very accessible to not-yet-Christians.

Was also previously published as The Healing Power of Stories and is still available second-hand under that name.

You can listen to a helpful talk by Professor Taylor at the 2008 Desiring God conference.

A further complementary insight into the underlying signficance of story is given in Christopher Booker’s The Seven Basic Plots.
