Description : Do you know what makes a story great? All the best stories have a few things in common. First, we need the voice of a narrator or a storyteller. Then, add interesting characters, throw them into a risky setting, and get ready for a good dose of conflict. Give those characters a purpose or goal, and that's then the real action begins. Story is our calling. It is also the next generation’s best chance of identifying with the Church and changing the world. As we become storytellers, we learn to see the world in terms of stories being lived and told. We discover deeper insights into God, ourselves, and others. God’s story is happening. We are right in the middle of a page-turner—and God is in it with us. Start seeing your life as a part of God’s story and make some great adventures happen right now!

Description : How are our memories, our narratives, and our intelligence interrelated? What can artificial intelligence and narratology say to each other? In this pathbreaking study by an expert on learning and computers, Roger C. Schank argues that artificial intelligence must be based on real human intelligence, which consists largely of applying old situations - and our narratives of them - to new situations in less than obvious ways. To design smart machines, Schank therefore investigated how people use narratives and stories, the nature and function of those narratives, and the connection of intelligence to both telling and listening. As Schank explains, "We need to tell someone else a story that describes our experiences because the process of creating the story also creates the memory structure that will contain the gist of the story for the rest of our lives. Talking is remembering." This first paperback edition includes an illuminating foreword by Gary Saul Morson.

Description : Tell Me A Story is a mystery novel set in a small southern town during the Depression of the thirties. Loren Oakers, an attorney, is a man who, tyrannized by an abusive father, spent his early adulthood spiting that parent, to the point of bringing home a bride he knew his father would reject. The novel unfolds with a fateful Labor Day picnic, when Oakers twin boys are drowned. His wife, holding him responsible because he had been drinking, leaves him, taking their ten-year- old daughter with her. Oakers sinks into despair and is badly injured in a drunk-driving accident. While recovering, he tells stories to children in the childrens ward of the hospital, and is then asked by one of the parents, a radio-station owner, to broadcast childrens stories on the air. This starts Oakers on a promising new career, with a hit radio program, but when two badly decomposed corpses are found in the woods at Hakers Creek, identified as his wife, Peggy, and daughter, Beth, circumstantial evidence points directly to him. He is brought to trial for the double murders. Feeling guilty and remorseful, he is unable to present a defense because he was drunk out of his mind the night of their deaths. A frightening event occurs during his trial, and the trial itself takes a bizarre twist, but the story doesnt reach its true and surprising climax until many years later, when Oakers is serving his country during World War II.
