About the Book

This is a book of stories that are telling in what they reveal about God, all told by a master storyteller. Brian’s tales of late-night dorm raids, college probation, high school awkwardness, and backstage passes will find you laughing. Others will bring you to tears. Whether they are stories of family, fame, adventure, pain, loss, miracles, or relationships, all of these stories reveal a God who is extravagant in His love for us.

As Brian says, “I’m praying that as you engage in these stories that life-changing decisions will be made. God decisions. Do me a favor. Pick up the book. Find a quiet place to read. Let me tell you a story.”

You’ll be glad you did!

“I had the great privilege of editing and publishing “The Diaries of Jim Rayburn” and “Letters to a Young Life Leader” by Bob Mitchell. I am happy to add “Telling Stories” by Brian Summerall to that list.  As a former staff person myself I know “Telling Stories” will be a great gift for leaders, donors, committee, and even kids.   Brian wrote it with a general audience in mind — but since Brian has been on staff for decades, it has a real Young Life sensibility to it.Giving this book to someone is like giving them a little bit of Young Life.”   – Kit Sublett, Whitecaps Media
