Publisher's Description

What is your story?
 
When strangers meet today they often ask not, "What do you do?," but "What is your story?" Everybody has a story. And everybody on the planet believes some larger story in order to make sense of the smaller story of their life. We want our lives to fit within a larger plot-complete with a sense of history, conflict resolution, forward movement, and future.
 
So, the better question to ask is, "What sort of story are you in?"
 
Most people believe false stories that leave them disillusioned, enslaved, and hopeless. Secular stories of chasing success and religious stories of doing good works can both leave us feeling exhausted and empty. Only Christianity, only the old and ongoing story of the Bible, offers a story that's big enough to make sense of both the beauty and brokenness in our lives and in our world. At the center of this story is a God who disturbs our life in order to set us free.

Editorial Reviews

The Big Story has a powerful message for young adults searching for a connection between their own lives and the message of the Scriptures. Buzzard highlights his main points by using the Bible as well as personal examples and quotations from men and women throughout history. This book challenges readers to learn about their faith and put it into action.
Congregational Libraries Today, Volume XIVII, Number 1

To write a book with two distinct audiences in mind-Christian and non-Christian-is no easy task, but Buzzard has done a fine job. Believers in particular will find helpful tips for using "the big story" to frame evangelistic conversations. Non-Christian readers should benefit from its generally solid overview of the major beats of the story of redemption. This is a good book that will hopefully be used to strengthen many and bring others to their knees in faith before Jesus.
Aaron Armstrong, review for The Gospel Coalition


Buzzard gets it right. Life is Story. And he connects that to the Big Story of the Gospel in helping readers find the purpose and direction their lives.
