Teaching in Oral Cultures
Dr. Tom Steffen
If you think storytelling, or its bigger brother orality, is just for tribal and peasant people, think again. This course investigates and demonstrates the genius of the narrative/story genre for those, yes, who can’t read, but also for growing multitude who can read, but do very little of it. Class members will participate in storytelling, design a seminar on the missiological applications of narrative, and write a major paper or create a video/project or develop a series of culturally relevant lessons that emphasize the narrative medium in areas such as evangelism, business, ESL, church planting, apologetics, homiletics, community development, leadership and followership development, counseling, research. The grand tour question for this course is: Why is it important to know the role of story in Scripture and service?
