Fictional stories speak to us in a way that is truer than real life. Even Jesus Christ, the greatest teacher of all time, regularly tapped into the power of telling completely untrue--and yet deeply true--stories. This book takes as its starting point the truth of the made up and uses one of the most popular story structures of all time--the Hero's Journey--and invites you to use this as the scaffolding for making meaning out of your own life. It is an invitation to storify your life, to get your bearings, to plot where you are. Are you being called to something? Are you enduring an ordeal? Are you enjoying the hard-won gains of a protracted struggle that is now finally over? By using this book's twelve-part structure you will gain more insight into what the threats and opportunities are at your particular stage of your particular adventure. ""In John 5:19, Jesus told us he only ever did what he saw his Father doing. When is the last time you purposefully considered the unfolding 'story' of your life to see more clearly what the Father is doing in and through you? If you are serious about living fully as a disciple of Jesus Christ, use this book to help you see the 'special world of adventure' that still awaits as you submit your days to the pen of the Almighty."" --Paul Robinson, CEO, Release International ""Heroes are not born, they are made, and The Hero's Journey Guidebook outlines creatively and engagingly a path that will empower us to go travel from ordinary to extraordinary. There is a hero in us all and this book will help set it free!"" --John Andrews, Principal, Mattersey Hall Bible College Ben Pugh is lecturer in theology at Cliff College, United Kingdom, where he teaches Christian discipleship.
