The emerging culture of our time is becoming more and more like the culture in which Jesus taught–a world of symbols, stories, and concrete images rather than of abstract rational discourse. The time has come for us to return to the communication methods of Jesus and apply them in ways that are relevant to people in our time and place. If we hope to engage people intellectually with the life-changing truth of the Word, we need to reclaim metaphor, simile, parable, story, object lesson, and visual reinforcement in our communication.
