J.O.Terry served under the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention as media missionary to the Philippines beginning in 1968 and later serving as the Asia-Pacific Region media consultant until retirement in 2003. Experience with Chronological Bible Teaching soon led to a need for greater emphasis on teaching the Bible stories along with appropriate learning activities for nonliterate peoples. Terry developed a number of widely used Bible story sets and led workshops and conferences in many countries. J. O. Terry serves as publisher of the Bible Storying Newsletter and the Journal of Bible Storying and continues to teach Bible storying and shares his experiences with others. Terry is convinced that Bible storying methods are effective in winning the lost to Christ, developing the saved in Christ, starting new churches, and in training their oral leaders.

Food Stories from the Bible

Food Stories from the Bible

$21.95

The Food Stories came about by requests from Bible storyers for a resource to use in ministry during famine relief and feeding programs. This book joins The Water Stories and The Hope Stories as a trilogy for use during these seasons of disaster response and relief ministries. Many of the stories are the same as storyers use for evangelism but are here told with a focus on food, feeding, and hunger while developing a growing evangelism theme. As a Bible storyer, I noticed again and again the interest in stories about food. My desire is that these stories will catch the interest of the hungry and fill their hungry hearts while a feeding ministry fills their stomachs.

Grief Stories: Good News for those with Stories of Misfortune and Grief

Grief Stories: Good News for those with Stories of Misfortune and Grief

$21.95eBook: $8.95

Because of the preference for no teaching, the book includes only the stories and a brief preface for the storyer. The concept for the book was based on a doctoral study that detailed the practice of certain Asian women who gathered to tell their misfortune stories as a way of discharging their emotions. The stories are arranged chronologically but can be used in any order as a resource. The chronological arrangement provides a subtle evangelistic drift that grows more intensive toward the latter stories. The story set has found wide use not only in Asia but among women of other cultures and worldviews.
