The Stories We Tell


Mike Cosper’s book The Stories We Tell: How TV and Movies Long For and Echo The Truth is a must read for Christians looking to engage the world around them with the beauty of the gospel. In this thoughtful and fun exploration of the TV and movies that our culture consumes Cosper helps us to find signposts to the gospel story of God’s grace in Christ Jesus. As a lover of good stories himself Cosper does not take a cynical approach, but provides a vision for how the entertainment we encounter on a weekly basis echoes the truth of God’s grand Story. This book has inspired me as an artist and as a consumer of good stories and I would highly recommend it to any reader looking to engage more thoughtfully in the stories of out time.
