  • Megan McKennas stories, and those of her friend, storyteller Tony Cowan, draw 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, Megan explores how the storyteller becomes a theologian, talking and teaching about God, the Keeper of the Story of us all.
