Eternal significance of drama

Biblical, strategic, essential

Sometimes Christians have been wary of using drama. “Can it be right to communicate in this way?” they ask. Others may happily use drama for children, but consider it has no relevance for communicating to adults.

We suggest that drama is an under-used yet essential means of communicating gospel truths, both to Christians and non-Christians. Of course there are dangers. There are dangers with preaching, dangers with street witnessing, dangers with web evangelism, dangers with radio evangelism. Let’s look at why drama is biblical and effective:

Our dramas and monologues – to challenge Christians about evangelism

Other sources of drama scripts

There are many other sources of Christian drama scripts. Do a web search for ‘Christian drama skit’ and you will find thousands of scripts, some free, some available at a modest price. You can also get a sense of the scope of drama by viewing these drama videos at YouTube.

There are several highly-recommended sources for scripts: DramaShare [www.dramashare.org] | DramaMinistry.com [www.dramaministry.com] | Sermons.com [www.sermons.com/the_christian_skits.asp] | Lillenas.com. [www.lillenas.com]

There are also published books of scripts. Caleb Project [www.calebporject.org] offers books of scripts challenging about to overseas missions: Mission Skits Notebook | Go Ye Therefore.

Handbooks
