This book is for busy teachers and church leaders who have endless demands on their time and energy and need stories that jump off the page, into the imagination and, from there, into daily life. Drawn from all four Gospels, the pieces are 'unplugged' in that they get into the heart of the biblical text, reflecting the life of Jesus in action: who he is, what he said and what he did. Some tell the story, some explore an aspect of the original account. Many pieces include children. Each piece comes with a short introduction of open-ended questions to encourage further exploration of the original story and the relevant Bible passage for reference. Some pieces are meant to be performed, some to be enjoyed quietly; but the overall aim is to have fun and enjoy unplugging the Gospels! Includes photocopy permission.

Lucy Moore works for BRF as Messy Church Team Leader. She is responsible for developing the work of Messy Church nationally and internationally-writing, speaking, reflecting and developing Messy projects. She continues to help lead Messy Church in her own church, where her husband is the minister. Before working full-time with Messy Church, Lucy was a member of BRF's Barnabas children's ministry team, offering training for those wanting to bring the Bible to life for children in churches and schools across the UK, and using drama and storytelling to explore the Bible with children herself. Her books include titles in the Messy Church series, as well as AllAge Worship, Colourful Creation, Bethlehem Carols Unpacked, The Lord's Prayer Unplugged and The Gospels Unplugged. She also presents Messy Church: the DVD. A secondary-school teacher by training, she enjoys acting, walking Minnie the dog, marvelling at the alien world of her two teenage children and guiltily watching unimproving television programmes. She is a Lay Canon of Portsmouth Cathedral.

From Methodist Recorder 03/04/03 The foreword to The Gospels Unplugged by Lucy Moore contains the dictum "When it comes to telling Bible stories, just about the worst thing we can do is to make them boring. The second worst thing, however, is to try so hard to make them 'fun that we trivialise them". The writer goes on to endorse Lucy Moore's skill in steering a course between these two pitfalls - and rightly so. The use of "unplugged" in the title reflects the book's aim of getting to the heart of the text of the four Gospels and these 52 poems and stories more than bring that aim to fruition as subjects such as the wedding in Cana, the sower and Peter's betrayal are brought to life in a variety of formats for use in RE, drama groups and collective worship. There is a Gospel references index and another for the themes, which run from Advent and Anger through Gratitude to Worry and Worship, and the book carries photocopying permission. Perceptive, informative and fun!
