Stories are powerful. They shape us and stay with us in a way that nothing else does. Ideas and wisdom can be portrayed in a way that draws the listener or reader in. Stories can build relationships and understanding. They can help to make sense of confusing concepts. In this compelling addition to the Track series, Joe Deegan explains why stories are so important – and what role they play in our everyday lives.
Joe Deegan was born and raised in the small town of Tuscumbia, Alabama and currently lives in Houston, Texas with his wife Leah and his four kids Ellie, Sam, Will, and Maggie. Joe spent seven years working as a youth minister and has been the Worship Resource Coordinator for Reformed Youth Ministries since 2018.
We all love a good story. The Power of Story is about stories, but not just any story. It’s about the greatest story of all. Teens, read this book to learn how your story was written to fit into God’s great big story.
Counselor, retreat speaker and author
Joe Deegan has reminded us of the power of the greatest story ever told, the gospel story told from Genesis 1 to Revelation 22. It’s the story that redeems our past, transforms our present and secures our future with Christ in eternity. This is not a book simply about the power of a story, but rather the power in the gospel story. I am encouraged as I read it, and I hope it encourages you the same.
Everyone knows the value of story…everyone, that is, except the church, and yet we have the greatest story ever told written in a book of stories—the Bible! Joe Deegan helps us to rediscover the power of story, why it’s so effective and why we need to rediscover it for today’s world. You’ll enjoy this book.
