BIBLE STORYING: 10-part series begins in Baptist Press

Throughout the world and in this country there are many persons who can be classified as "oral learners." Among these there are those who have not had the opportunity to learn to read, those who can read but have difficulty understanding what they read, and those who simply learn better through oral communication.

Among some unreached people groups, 80 to 90 percent cannot read and in some urban areas of America 30 to 40 percent are either illiterate or functionally illiterate.

Especially with reference to those who cannot read or do not understand what they read, we must ask the question: Is there another way to communicate the message of the Gospel to them?

The answer fortunately is affirmative. There is a method to communicate with these persons so they can understand the message, receive Christ, continue to grow in discipleship, share the message with others, and serve the Lord in a variety of ministries. This method is "Bible Storying" which simply involves telling the Bible stories so that people can hear them, understand them, apply them, and share them with others.
