Need some revitalization of your worship service with more involvement on the part of the congregations? Or do you need more focus on the sermon subjects? This book may well be your answer. The 53 responsive readings in the book differ from the traditional approach. Here you may find the audience cast in various roles (such as in drama) where they will respond as a character in a story (such as in readers theatre). Good reading is easy to achieve (as in choral reading) and the audience gets to answer and suggest corporately (as in traditional responsive readings).
The audience may play the fool, the pharisee, the publican, God, the believer, or the skeptic. At all times we worked at keeping the responses short so that the long monotony of untrained reading would be avoided, and a minimum of rehearsal instruction would be needed to have maximum expression.
Both youth and adults have enjoyed these responsive readings. We think your congregation will as well!!
