The Gift of Story brings contemporary literature and film into conversation with the grand Christian narrative. This book examines the specific connections between contemporary cultural meta-narratives (the stories humans typically tell about themselves) and the ideas of hope found in Christianity. Despite postmodernism's skepticism about narrative, the dialogue with contemporary fiction, drama, music and film demonstrates that the Christian story can engender and sustain hope.

In this companion book, Milton shares insights about storytelling related to themes ranging from mythology and human identity, to social justice, changing from the inside out, tragedy, awe and mystery, hope and promise, and more. But the story is always central; the story is always “the thing.” The videos include key biblical stories about seminal biblical characters – Eden and Eve, Jonah, the prodigal, Mary and Elizabeth, the Ethiopian eunuch, Zacchaeus, Mary of Magdala, Sarah…and more. In The Gift of Story, Milton reflects on what stories mean to humans, “the story-telling animal,” how we can all tell stories to enrich our lives, and to rejoice in the complementary role that stories and the logic of science play. It’s a fun read full of lively, refreshing stories and insights. The Gift of Story picks up where Ralph Milton’s live StoryFest events leave off. Those events – led by gifted musicians, artists, and storytellers Linnea Good, Don McNair, Allison Rennie, Donald Schmidt, as well as Ralph Milton – were designed to provide a spiritual “shot in the arm, focusing on evocative Bible stories and personal faith experiences.”
