Strengths and Weaknesses of Storytelling for Christianity


I have told many stories about my journey before and after coming to saving faith. There were highlights like the morning I came forward for prayer about my new job when an elder at an Assembly of God church. At that moment I could not speak. He asked if I had received Jesus Christ as my Savior. I shook my head no. He asked if he could pray for me and I shook my head yes. Then he began to lead me in the sinner prayer and suddenly I could pray. While I was pray…

Sharing Scripture through Visual Translation

Several years ago I began studying whole books of the Bible by drawing a simple sketch of each scene, trying to capture all the important details, and then incorporating them into very large (5 ft x 7 ft) paintings of the entire book. I have completed Mark (95 scenes), Acts (85 scenes), the Life of Abraham (61 scenes) and Revelation, as well as smaller paintings of the first 7 chapters of John.

Here is the Mark 1-9…
