BRANCH, Robin Gallaher. Funny Bone finds a home: A musical featuring the Body of Christ. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2013, vol.47, n.1, pp. 1-17. ISSN 1018-6441.
This play is a teaching tool and examines the concepts of unity and disunity in the Body of Christ. Based on 1 Corinthians 12:12-27, the play contains as characters the body parts mentioned by Paul in his instruction on the need for honouring different ministries and functions in the church. Combining humour and song, the play follows in the steps of ancient medieval allegories and illustrates a biblical teaching in a contemporary way.
