What is a narraphor?
Effective preaching is the art of exegeting not the words and principles, but the images, metaphors and stories (narraphors) of Scripture. Like a parable, a narraphor contains the power of a metaphorical image with the accessibility and approachability of a story. The Story Lectionary is the first of its kind…a collection of 52 narraphors from the preaching students of Dr. Leonard Sweet.
Every Narraphor Sermon has been crafted for use in local congregations and explain top-shelf theological concepts in simple, approachable language. This resource is designed to bring “the best (material) to the rest (of the church).”
