orality breakouts 2010_0Sure it’s more fun to learn chronological Bible storytelling in a one-week in-person course in Florida. But suppose you’re in a spot in which time or dollars prevent that for the moment. The next best thing might be to download free how-to books on orality via a great link you heard about right here at To get your free downloads (without having to sign up for anything or be spammed at all!), point your browser to…

The key book there, Making Disciples of Oral Learners, by Avery Willis, will definitely get you started. Thanks to the IMB, Avery Willis, and the International Orality Network (which he helped lead for so much of the latter years of his great life)!

6) A Free Book Every Day?

Free-on-KindleI know. Hard to believer, right? But that’s exactly what they offer at…

On a particular day, they’ll draw attention to a real, mainline Christian book for sale on Amazon or somewhere else. I’ll make up my mind to go there later… and I’ll go back the next day, and the book will now cost $8 or $15 or whatever. So it’s a for-real marketing approach that wants to keep you coming back daily. And if you’re a reader, it will work! :-)
