This book promises two things: It will give lectors and presiders new skills to help them become true storytellers, and it will result in greater accessibility to Scripture for the gathered faithful. This manual covers it all, moving the reader from basic instruction on how to use voice and posture to more advanced instruction on how to create and live the text. Written in a whimsical, humorous style, it explains each skill in detailed yet simple language. Also included are "Tricks of the Trade," acting trivia, and folklore sidebars.Leal, Douglas is the author of 'Stop Reading and Start Proclaiming!
