Tell Me a Story
When your community needs a reminder of God’s bigger story in their lives…
All the best stories have a few things in common—sometimes, we just have to step back from our daily routine to see them. First, we need the voice of a narrator or a storyteller. Then, add in some interesting characters, throw them into a risky setting, and get ready for a good dose of conflict. Give those characters a purpose or goal and then…well, then the real action begins!
When we recognize the elements of a great story, we begin to see our lives as a part of God’s story. Then, we’ll better understand what He has for us, what we should believe about this story, and what we should then do.
God’s story is happening. We are right in the middle of a page-turner—and God is with us in it.

Tell Me a Story is an invitation to embrace the story of God unfolding in all of our lives. It’s a witty, insightful, and practical look into the raw beauty of story and its transformative power.
Charles Lee, CEO of Ideation, author of Good Idea. Now What?
Tell Me a Story is a reminder that the life of following Jesus is not a rigid, legalistic experience, but a story in which we get to breathe and live. Through these pages, Scott writes of God’s invitation for all of us to surrender our character, conflict, narrative, purpose, and plot to God, the greatest storyteller of all time.
