Flor McCarthy’s books on liturgy and homiletics are greatly enlivened by his creative use of apposite stories. Now he is offering a book built around what happens when a storyteller visits a small community. The 33 stories which the visiting storyteller shares with the people he visits, prompt a range of responses and insights among the listeners.
In The Storyteller Flor McCarthy is building on the observation of Danish writer Karen Blixen that a storyteller has the capacity to create for people, hard-working in real life, another sort of reality which in some way or another can satisfy them.
