Reality and Other Stories

How the Seven Basic Plots Point Us to the Meaning of Reality
  • By Peter Dray, Matt Lillicrap
Product Description

Stories shape us and shape our understanding of the world. So is it coincidence that we see the same seven basic plot points repeated over time and across cultures? What if the stories we tell can give us clues to the meaning of the reality we live in?

In Reality and Other Stories, Peter Dray and Matt Lillicrap explore how seven story archetypes - Overcoming the Monster, Rags to Riches, The Quest, Voyage and Return, Comedy, Tragedy and Rebirth - are not only universal, but also found in the story of Christ. As they unpack each example, they demonstrate how Jesus' story is where myth becomes history and can give true meaning to all our lives.

This is not just another Christian apologetics book. Reality and Other Stories is an ideal gift to give to new Christians and those just beginning to explore faith. The authors show the power of storytelling to affect our lives, and through examples of story archetypes demonstrates that the life of Jesus truly is the story at the heart of reality.

Uplifting and encouraging, Reality and Other Stories will help you explore Jesus' story for yourself and better understand how it is through Jesus that we can discover the meaning of the reality around us and find purpose in our lives.
