Fictional stories speak to us in a way that is truer than real life. Even Jesus Christ, the greatest teacher of all time, regularly tapped into the power of telling completely untrue--and yet deeply true--stories. This book takes as its starting point the truth of the made up and uses one of the most popular story structures of all time--the Hero's Journey--and invites you to use this as the scaffolding for making meaning out of your own life. It is an invitation to storify your life, to get your bearings, to plot where you are. Are you being called to something? Are you enduring an ordeal? Are you enjoying the hard-won gains of a protracted struggle that is now finally over? By using this book's twelve-part structure you will gain more insight into what the threats and opportunities are at your particular stage of your particular adventure.

In this lively and accessible book, Alyce McKenzie explores how fiction writers approach the task of writing novels: how they develop their ideas, where they find their inspiration, and how they turn the spark of a creative notion into words on paper that will captivate the masses. McKenzie's study shows how preachers can use the same techniques to enhance their own creativity and to turn their ideas into powerful, well crafted sermons. Novel Preaching offers a wealth of advice from successful fiction writers, including Isabelle Allende, Frederick Buechner, Julia Cameron, Annie Dillard, Natalie Goldberg, Stephen King, Toni Morrison, Joyce Carol Oates, and Melanie Rae Thorn, and also includes a number of sample sermons from McKenzie herself.
