Listen to 156 Stories based on Biblical Images for All Sundays of the Year

These are my favorite stories for exploring the rich images of Scripture. They help us better understand the message of the Good News with rich images from the folktales, legends, parables, and myths of God’s children -- the Peoples of the World.  Listen to them with an attentive imagination and an open heart. And your mind prayerfully dwell on the powerful words and vivid images of the Hebrew Scriptures, the Epistles, and the Gospels.
