A good story draws students in, engaging their hearts and minds--leaving them wanting more. God's story is like this...a captivating epic that stretches from the beginning of time, across our lives and into the future...calling us to find ourselves in it. We can help students to be captured by this amazing story, rather than seeing the Bible as confusing, boring or irrelevant. After ten years in youth ministry, Michael Novelli felt like he had tried everything to help his students connect with the Bible. Then, a missionary introduced him to a unique, ancient way to engage people with the Bible through story. Michael learned the art of "Storying," a sequential telling of Bible stories followed by a time of creative retelling and in-depth dialogue. God used this process to completely transform his youth group as they found themselves experiencing God in a whole new way. Take a journey into the amazing process of Storying, and discover how it can change your life and ministry. This new approach to learning builds a lasting theological foundation while challenging students to discover their unique identity and calling in God's story. Shaped by the Story helps you understand why Storying connects with students today, and provides all you need to introduce Storying to your group, including sample narratives and an interactive training DVD.

Barry Shafer, founder and director of InWord Resources, has been active in student ministry for over 20 years, serving in positions that run the gamut of youth ministry - from volunteer to full-time youth pastor. The author of numerous small-group Bible studies and student devotionals, he�s a frequent speaker and trainer at youth worker and student events nationwide. He and his wife, Dana, live in Ohio.

Michael Novelli has invested his life mentoring and inspiring high school students and youth workers. For more than 13 years he has led student ministries in local churches in the Chicago area. Michael now develops interactive resources, curriculum, experiences, and events to help students, educators, and youth workers learn in new ways. For several years Michael has been developing narratives and training to help others discover the art of "Storying," a dialogical approach to Bible learning. Much of his Storying work is available for free at www.echothestory.com. He, his wife Michele, and their son, Angelo, live in Elgin, Illinois.
