From the Publisher:

More wonderful tales—and how to tell them—from master storyteller Megan McKenna. A coyote, a woodcutter, a Buddist Zen master, a boy named Samuel, a Sufi mystic, two men walking to Emmaus—all are central characters in stories told by Megan McKenna. As we listen to "Once upon a time," their lives become our lives. We learn from their mistakes and profit from their wisdom.

Megan McKenna's stories are drawn from many religious traditions—Hebrew Scriptures, sufi mysticism, Native American traditions, Eastern religions, and the Christian Gospels. Keepers of the Story also offers readers fascinating and helpful information about storytelling itself. In the final chapter, McKenna explores how the storyteller becomes theologian, talking and teaching about God, the Keeper of the Story of us all.
