Dramatist and playwright, Kathryn Ross, provides a resource for Christian drama ministry directors and teachers in churches and schools, in addition to community theatre groups.
A drama curriculum written from a biblical worldview, The Creative Process: God’s Story Onstage traces the history of drama and its purposes in human societies. From its roots as a tool for worship in across cultures and belief systems, to the golden age of Greek theatre introducing the power of comedy and tragedy in storytelling, to the impact of Hebrew pageantry, Roman circuses, medieval Pageant Wagons, Shakespeare and beyond.
But, the important aspect of this study resource is that it lays a firm biblical foundation for understanding drama, storytelling, and the creative process in the fine arts. Discover God as the author and provider of the inspiration, intelligence, and skills to produce story in word, drama, dance, and visual arts. Then, take an epic journey through the timeline of His Story of the dramatic arts, and learn how to use your drama ministy as an opportunity for Christian discipleship.
