HB, Is there a particular situation or circumstance which you have in mind with this question? As a former college chaplain in a multifaith context, it was my responsibility to both promote a free exchange of ideas while simultaneously protecting the rights of all within an academic community. This meant that any religious group had the right to gather, publicize their events, beliefs, etc. What was not allowed was coercize or aggressive evangelism? Thus, if you were a Christian group who...

You might be right, Herustar. It's an intersting question. In one sense, there might not be much difference, for written stories can be oral stories put into a book. They also will help stabilize the memory of the community, for the memories will not change. Some oral ones can't help changing. On the other hand, an oral tradition has to engage the entire community in ways that books, being much more individual, would not and perhaps can not.
