Product description

PRICE REDUCTION
'The Dramatised Bible -' Doing justice to the greatest drama of all! For many years churches have been dramatising passages of the Bible as they have sought dynamic ways of presenting the word of God. Here, at last, is 'The Dramatised Bible'. Using the established modern texts of the 'Good News Bible' and the 'New International Version' with the additional Jubilate liturgical psalms, 'The Dramatised Bible' will be of immediate assistance to all who want church worship, group studies, youth events, school assemblies and religious education programmes to come alive. 'The Dramatised Bible' is one of the most exciting innovations in worship material of recent years. The culmination of many years work by the editor and compiler, Michael Perry, the book offers churches, schools and Christian groups the opportunity of presenting the extraordinary drama of the Bible text in a new and colourful way. 'The Dramatised Bible' includes: - All the Bible narrative dramatised - Bible teaching arranged for choral speaking where appropriate - Major worship psalms set simply for responsorial use - Full cast listing with each reading - Denominational liturgical responses - Indexes to characters, subjects, worship themes and seasons "The dramatised reading of the Passion on Palm Sunday - a common feature of the liturgy in many churches - brings familiar words alive in a fresh and vivid way. 'The Dramatised Bible' does this for many other biblical stories and passages. I welcome it as an imaginative aid to the increased use of Scriptures in worship." DR ROBERT RUNCIE 'The Archbishop of Canterbury' "'The Dramatised Bible' provides the church with an imaginative and extremely useful tool for encouraging greater participation in public worship and enabling a more vivid presentation of the message of Scripture. Even the most familiar of Bible passages come alive in a fresh and arresting way. I warmly welcome this publication and hope it will be widely used." THE REVD DR DONALD ENGLISH 'General Secretary, Methodist Home Mission Division' "A responsive reading to the psalms is part of the church's tradition to aid congregational participation in worship. Here is an imaginative way of taking that further, making Scripture come alive in a new way by using various voices. Narrative passages such as the call of the Lord to Samuel break down easily without alteration of the text, but here we discover how many more passages can be enhanced by simple but effective dramatic presentation. This will be a help to all who lead worship." DR JOHN BIGGS 'President, The Baptist Union of Great Britain' "Opening the Bible in life-changing ways is a practice to be encouraged for all who own it. 'The Dramatised Bible' is an effective attempt to do this, and will be invaluable in presenting the Good News as 'alive and active' as it rightly claims to be. Familiar words come to life. The text is allowed to speak for itself. I commend it warmly." THE REVD DAVID M S COHEN 'General Director, Scripture Union' "I welcome 'The Dramatised Bible' as another way of bringing the scriptures alive and making them more accessible to all Christians. This way of proclaiming the texts of the Good News Bible will be of great benefit to schools and bible study groups." CARDINAL BASIL HUME, 'The Archbishop of Westminster'
