    What are some of the book's themes? Danyah Miller's top ten tips for stunning storytelling Read more The difference between a story telling and a story reading rests not so much in the kind of story it is, but more in the way the audience interacts with it. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification eg. Despite the gap between their "end time" and ours, however, Daniel and Revelation continue to offer moving witness and abiding insight into faith that is lived in the alluring, threatening shadow of powerful human institutions.

    In the end, Ezekiel's prediction proved inaccurate, but the prophet took it in stride.

Beowulf, the bravest of all warriors, goes to the help of a neighbouring kingdom in order to do battle against takes on the ferocious Grendel, a savage creature who stalks the night. But the purpose of God seems able to prevail despite inaccurate prophecies.

    The "Common Knowledge" section now includes a "Series" field. Their view is fixed not on the distant future, but on the visionary's here-and-now and soon-to-be. Did the book end the way you expected? In both Daniel and Revelation, however, the faithful are given a glimpse of heavenly history so they can understand the hidden significance of their present suffering. Storytellers can make the story fit the local circumstances of the audience: they can use local details of place or weather which adds immediacy to the narrative; they can engage members of the audience in the telling of the story by inviting them to become characters in the action and they can use the listeners to predict what might happen next or even to influence which direction the story might take — although most storytellers will keep a pretty firm grip on how to reach the ending! Whether you are discussing characters and their actions, setting, theme, or images, having a guide to questions that will lead to fruitful exchanges on your enjoyment — or lack thereof — of the book, plot, and even its moral implications can help make your discussion more productive and keep it on track.
