Stories are powerful because they capture our imagination! Jesus was the master story-teller and he certainly captured the hearts and minds of his followers! To reach this generation with the Gospel, we must learn to speak this language! Justin Baily teaches us to draw on the resources of the imagination to help doubters gain a sense of what authentic Christian faith looks and feels like through a fresh approach to apologetics!
