Description

This book will help pastors educated in the literate culture of academia bridge the cultural gap between them and those in their congregations who verbalize their faith in proverbs and stories. Tex Sample suggests some implications for preaching, teaching, and counseling and discusses how questions of morality and social change are handled by people who think in terms of communal relationship rather than abstract theory.

Indeed, recent studies have shown that a large number of Americans, including many in the churches, are not functionally literate. Tex Sample says they live and work in an oral culture.
