GoodBookStall Review:

Re-Storying Your Faith is a wonderful little book that looks at the nature of stories, the stories we tell each other and ourselves everyday in our relationships, in our conversations and in the basic nature of our thoughts and minds.

Our whole lives are a series of stories lived out in reality and imagination and many of these stories are deeply spiritual in nature and scope, indeed some of our most important and foundational stories are our religious ones, however this doesn't always make them our best stories...

Coyle goes on in this book to look at how we probably need to approach the stories we know and tell ourselves and in effect repurpose them, or rework them entirely - we need to look beyond the surface story to the deeper hidden meanings we have overlooked or lost sight of.

For anyone interested in the nature of story then this book is probably a must read. For anyone aware of the fact that perhaps there are dissonances between what they were told and what they believe, then again this book would probably be a great tool too.

This book could well be used in a group setting but would as easily be a good work book for individuals too.
