Today's show:

Grant Lovejoy on Orality.

  • Grant continues his seminar called "Introduction to Orality" and today assesses literacy around the world. Listen (with surprise!) to information from the West and developing nations.
  • He looks at reading rates in our Western younger, emerging generation.
  • Finally he concludes by discussing how we might introduce this important topic of discussion to others ... without causing offense.

Grant Lovejoy has taught on storying in more than twenty countries and has been a keynote speaker at international conferences on orality. A storying-based leadership training process that he helped develop is in use in Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America. He has also taught preaching and Chronological Bible Storying at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas.

There is no Pick of the Week during this series to allow maximum time for Grant to speak on the show! We'll be back soon with our weekly picks!
