"And God Created Human: A Collection of Scenes and Monologues" (Back Cover):
Two thousand years ago, Jesus told parables to touch the hearts and minds of those he wanted to reach and teach. Today, how can we reach people from all walks of life with biblical truth?
And God Created Human: A Collection of Scenes and Monologues brings God's teachings to life through drama, providing a collection of humorous, contemporary pieces to be performed or simply read. They relay the message of God's love, hope, and involvement in our lives as we face life's ups and downs.
Drama subjects include insecurity, temptation, spiritual warfare, and fear, just to name a few. These creative dramas and monologues will engage your audience in worship services, retreats, Bible study groups, and more. Scripture verses and questions are included to encourage and guide discussions and show how God and his word apply to our lives today.
8 Bites (1-2 minute scenes)
Included in each chapter: Topic, Scripture reference, and Questions for reflection.

Reverend Dee Cooper, Church of the Hills Presbyterian, Colorado
"This is a playful winner! By biblically characterizing God as an approachable, compassionate, and loving Creator, Jana supports and nutures through each scene a genuine understanding of God for all people. Through laughter and poignancy, she accompanies the audience to a new place of this journey of faith. A bonus of this book is that Jana provides her own candid and comical self reflection as she describes her own struggles through the setup of each scene."

"The scenes are delightful in their simplicity and thought-provoking in their depth. This book is wonderful for small country churches like mine or large-member churches that have a much larger staging area. I have tried to use pre-printed plays, and longer skits, but they took too much time and too many rehearsals. These are perfect for our situations."
