In 'Storytellers: Bringing Muslims Home', Bernie Power shows how the art of storytelling can be used to answer the questions that Muslims ask about the Christian faith. He does so by telling us a story within a story, which points to the greatest story ever told: the story of God's Son, Jesus Christ.In Bernie's novel, we are introduced to a young Christian couple: Tom, a teacher, and his wife Hanna, a doctor, who travel to the Middle East to live and work with the Yemeni people. Together they face challenges, make friends and answer questions about their faith using the method most favoured by both Arabic cultures and Jesus himself - stories.'Storytellers: Bringing Muslims Home' is packed with references from both the Bible and the Qur'an. It is an invaluable resource for Christians engaging with the followers of Islam, Muslims who are curious and wish to understand more about Christianity, and to anyone with an interest in Christian-Muslim dialogue.
The centrality of a storytelling approach makes this book eminently readable and ensures its relevance to Christian-Muslim interaction in diverse contexts.

This book outlines ways of presenting the good news of Jesus Christ to Muslims and answering their many questions in story form. The aim is to see Muslims come home to the true biblical Jesus they learn about only partially and imperfectly in the Qur’an.

This book is unique and quite brilliant. Here we have a gifted storyteller, telling honest,
fun and insightful stories about using stories, to share Jesus.
Dr Richard Shumack - Melbourne School of Theology
This approach is undergirded with serious study of the Qur’an and Hadith, and by
sensitivity to the cultures of Islamic communities. If Jesus told stories (parables), why
shouldn’t Christians today do the same?
