About the Author

Christine Dillon is an OMF missionary from Australia, now serving as a church planter in Taiwan. She is the author of 1-2-1 Discipleship: Helping One Another Grow Spiritually.


"Because of my close association with pastors and pastors-in-training from other cultures, presenting the truths of Scripture through stories has been a longstanding interest. Of all the books (and seminars) that I have considered on this subject, Dillon's book rises to the top."--E. A. Sorum, Wisconsin Lutheran Quarterly112, no. 2, Spring 2015
"Dillon's easy-to-implement instruction is a helpful resource for the reader wanting to experience the power of story. Her work offers the storying movement and the church a valuable medium to communicate with."--Mark W. Overstreet, Evangelical Missions Quarterly, April 2013
"This is a must-read for the beginner, as well as those already involved in storytelling as a way of sharing the gospel. I highly recommend it."--Skip Holman, Baptist Standard, November 19, 2012
"This wonderful 'how to' book is not merely a brief introduction to storytelling, but is an in-depth biblical and practical study of this important subject. Regardless of your present approach to evangelism, you will find this book to be a significant help as you have the opportunity to introduce others to Jesus Christ."--Paul Cedar, Outreach Magazine, "Resources of the Year" issue, March/April 2013
