Telling Stories to Change the World is a powerful collection of essays about community-based and interest-based projects where storytelling is used as a strategy for speaking out for justice. Contributors from locations across the globe—including Uganda, Darfur, China, Afghanistan, South Africa, New Orleans, and Chicago—describe grassroots projects in which communities use narrative as a way of exploring what a more just society might look like and what civic engagement means. These compelling accounts of resistance, hope, and vision showcase the power of the storytelling form to generate critique and collective action. Together, these projects demonstrate the contemporary power of stories to stimulate engagement, active citizenship, the pride of identity, and the humility of human connectedness.

Can a novel cause riots, start a war, free serfs or slaves, break up marriages, drive readers to suicide, close factories, bring about law change, swing an election, or serve as a weapon in a national or international struggle? The author explores this question in the form of a theoretical essay on narrative and power, followed by five detailed case studies of works by Turgenev, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Ignazio Silone, Solzhenitsyn and Salman Rushdie, each of which had or was said to have had a major impact on the political events in its time. Forcefully argued and written with a minimum of jargon, this book no doubt appeals to a wide readership well beyond that of the specialist in literature.

This innovative book combines theoretical and practical perspectives with the power of storytelling to present a new understanding of leadership as a concept and endeavour in the small business organisation. With the assertion that leadership capability is a key function of small firm survival and growth, it underlines the importance of addressing the phenomenon within small business. Employing storytelling as a fresh alternative to a traditional case study approach, the narrative of leading with purpose in real time is captured alongside relevant and current academic debate. In building upon the Harvard model of purpose driven leadership, the author offers a new definition and discussion of leadership that connects theory to real impact, based on research carried out with UK small business organisations. The overall aim of the book is to provoke interest in small business leadership and generate new knowledge of leading with purpose.

Track  the Power of Story

The importance of stories in our lives

Author: Joe Deegan

ISBN: 1527106950

A compelling dive into the importance of stories in our lives for young adults. Stories are powerful.They shape us and stay with us in a way that nothing else does. Ideas and wisdom can be portrayed in a way that draws the listener or reader in. Stories can build relationships and understanding. They can help to make sense of confusing concepts. In this compelling addition to the Track series, Joe Deegan explains why stories are so important - and what role they play in our everyday lives. For centuries people have used fairy tales and folk tales to warn children not to stray into the woods or get too close to wolves. Whether fact or fiction the best stories have a familiar shape - a beginning, a middle and an ending - as well as characters that we recognise. It seems that a need for stories lives in the heart of every human. Deegan contends that this love for stories comes from God. He is the greatest storyteller of all time, and He created us in His image. During Jesus' earthly ministry He spent a lot of time speaking in parables. Between the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John we have a record of over 50 different stories He used. The main way God has chosen to reveal Himself is through the Bible - an epic story about who God is and how much He loves us. Spanning all of time, God's Word is more than an instruction manual. Yes, it teaches us important truths and tells us how we are to live, but it is meant for intimacy before instruction. It encourages us to draw near, shaping and molding us into His very own image as we read Scripture in the power of the Spirit. With short chapters and questions for reflections Joe Deegan shows us how we go about understanding God's story, and our place in it. Contents Stories Shape Us Your Life Is A Story Your Story Is Not An Accident God's Word Is A Story Advice For Reading God's Story God's Story Is True The False Narratives Of The World What Makes A Story Good Your Story Has An Author Your Story Has An Ending About the Track Series Track is a series of books designed to disciple the next generation in the areas of culture, doctrine, & the Christian life.

People involved in business at all levels have time constraints. They are bombarded with data: electronic, printed word and voice, much of it unnecessary. They need to find time to continue their education, particularly in their chosen business fields. There is so much to read and so little time and often little to capture the imagination. This book The Halo and the Noose is a very different type of business book. It covers the necessary theoretical aspects of business management, but the story telling captivates one. We remember stories from childhood and some of the better fiction read in later years. The 100 stories and poems in The Halo and the Noose enchant and educate and will do for many years whilst we remain in harness. If you have taken very few memories away from this wonderful book, that of Nasrudin's Donkey is worthwhile relating to your children, your students, colleagues and very definitely to your boss.
