Quiet Demons & Screaming Peter Pan

My book “Quiet Demons and Screaming Peter Pan” is a collection of stories about the art and story of worship. I’m trying it out on you here on this blog. Each week I will post more chapters. Please read and comment along the way. Let me know what you like and what you find confusing or even flat-out wrong. I appreciate your feedback, and I’ll use it to adjust the book prior to publication. You may  comment on the blog or send a note to me privately.

If you are starting to read “Quiet Demons & Screaming Peter Pan,” read through the introduction.  The table of contents can serve as a guide to what is to come.

And if you can’t wait for another chapter and want a look at the entire book now, you may purchase the complete book Quiet Demons and Screaming Peter Pan: Stories about the Art of Story and Worship. This is a pre-publication release especially for friends of the project. You can order a book for $7.95 plus $2.50 shipping and handling from the Northwestern College Bookstore at bookstore@nwciowa.edu.

    Jeff,
    Ah…a breath of fresh air. I really enjoyed reading the intro. You have a wonderful way of telling stories.
    I attended the worship conference at NWC and have since been longing to hear more about story and worship. It seems like something so wonderful and yet so unattainable but my question is “how?” It’s like you’re a child who sees a wonderful piece of candy on the very top shelf but cannot reach it.
    It seems so hard to introduce any change in the worship service even though people want something fresh and new…they long to be filled with something that will last them through the week or at least serve as a pick me up. Perhaps they are simply longing for sanctuary.
    But “how?”
    I look forward to reading the 1st chapter.
    Grace and Peace.

    Paul,

    I’m currently working on a variety of projects for church, school and profession – both plays and films. My college is Northwestern College, website http://www.nwciowa.edu. Do you have a more specific question regarding what you’re particularly interested in?

  5. I’m intrigued. I am preparing a faculty development seminar for a rural community college in Oregon on how to use blogs / wiki / podcasting / etc. to enhance instruction. I have been cruising through the blogosphere to find how other colleges are using the technology. This is a bit of a different take on purpose for a blog than what I was looking for, but I like what I see.

    I’ll be back!
