Striking dramas for your school are contained in Paul Herbert's exciting collection, Sketches with Scalpels.
Major issues are tackled head-on in a way which appeals to young people. There are also sketches which promote discussion and debate on issues not normally tackled in the more traditional classroom environment, making them ideal material for schools.
The sketches cover a range of issues, from death and drugs to morality and relationships, healing, faith, prayer and Bible reading.
Each piece is followed with thoughts and suggested questions which allow discussion to take place at a level appropriate for the age and 'Christian awareness' of the group.

•Tickets Please (Poverty) • This Was Your Life (Death) • The Blands (Being acceptable to God) • Revival's Restaurant (Church/Communion) • Almighty Auctions (Use of spiritual gifts) • Next (Drugs) • Let's Go Counselling (Relationships/Church) • Faith Healer (Faith/Prayer/Bible reading) • Fishing (Evangelism) • Blind Faith (Church and the non-Christian) • The Salvation Game (Attitudes/Judgement) • Church Watch (Sexual morality) • The Healing Service (Healing)
