Storymakers: A Holistic Approach to Bible Reading and Study

From: Volume 12, Issue 1: Spring 2015, Research on Effective Pedagogy Pages 81-92


In an attempt to encourage the retelling of Bible stories and holistically engaging Scripture, I developed an approach I call Storymakers. It is an approach to reading and engaging Scripture that is both simple and profound, that pays attention to the text and also one’s personal story. Because of its simplicity, participants have little difficulty in learning and practicing it. In this article, I explain the foundational elements that underpin Storymakers and give a description of its actual practice through its five movements.

Key Words: Bible study, lectio divina, Scripture meditation, small group Bible study
