"Robert Strauss has made a timely contribution to tell the Gospel story in a way that is world-transforming. Coming from India, a land of stories, I cannot but deeply admire Strauss's extraordinary sensitivity to the local stories in different cultures that may parallel, if not rival, the Gospel stories, and his erudite wisdom in inviting [others], particularly the cross-cultural Gospel storytellers, to awake to the way stories function in a local culture so that the Gospel itself may be communicated intelligently and intelligibly."

"Whether you are one of the four hundred thousand foreign missionaries, five and a half million full-time Christian workers, or a devoted local church member, this book is a great resource for building cross-cultural narrative communication skills and is an invitation for readers to become great biblical storytellers across cultures. Robert's book has become my 'go-to' text for teaching narrative communication in a faith-based institution of higher education."
