In Getting into Character: The Art of First-Person Narrative Sermons (Brazos Press), pastor/playwright/actor Stephen Chapin Garner offers practical advice for preparing and presenting first-person narratives that will be fresh and engaging. Pastors who don’t have much experience with such sermons will find this a helpful resource and an encouragement to try such sermons from time to time.
This book will help equip the pastor who desires to teach via first-person narrative by taking on the voice of biblical characters. Getting into Character equips pastors to deliver dramatic sermons–without being an actor. First-person narrative brings  characters to life in ways that can illustrate memorable gospel messages, thereby increasing effectiveness. Getting into Character is helpful for pastors and seminary students looking to expand their styles and pastors who want to perfect narrative and storytelling.
