LECTIONARY TALES FOR THE PULPIT by John Sumwalt & Jo Perry-Sumwalt
Stories to help the preacher touch the hearts of adults ... children ... to evoke laughter and tears with an ironic twist or a surprise ending ...
John Sumwalt's stories are a treat-the Gospel comes alive in common life and in regular people, and suddenly we are enchanted by grace.

Professor of Preaching
Garret-Evangelical Theological Seminary
John Sumwalt's stories bring the Gospel to life in the fullest sense of that phrase ... I have grown to appreciate the way John's stories direct my eyes and open my ears to God's presence in the everyday occasions of life.
