Product Description

This reference resource illuminates each of the thirty-one narrative chapters of The Story, a Bible that presents the overarching message of scripture chronologically through the biblical text itself. Commentary and accompanying charts and images explain history, characters, events, and theological concepts, bringing to life the "greatest story ever told."

Exploring the Story helps you understand and grasp the significance of each chapter in the The Story, an innovative Bible that presents Scripture as a continuous narrative in chronological order. The big picture of God's redemptive plan comes into focus as you learn about the following elements:

Timeline-shows how the events of The Story relate to the rest of history Plot Points-briefly describes the key narrative themes of a passage Cast of Characters-introduces the people featured in the text.

Chapter Overview-summarizes the corresponding chapter in The Story Discussion Questions-gives ideas for individual or group reflection Section Commentary-presents theological issues, important archaeological discoveries, or launch points for further discussion

Small group leaders, pastors, and lay students of the Bible will gain a deeper understanding of God's life-changing redemptive plan by reading this book alongside The Story.

    Since doing The Story as a small group study was my idea, I was chosen to lead -- and not being a Bible "reader" until now, I was totally unprepared for the "challenge"! This companion has been wonderful (along with Participant's Guide & DVD) to help me learn and be "partially" prepared to lead the group each week. I have shared lots of material with the others who are at various stages of "Bible" knowledge. We are thoroughly enjoying the study! Thanks to CBD for having such wonderful prices on The Story!

    Colorful pictures and great details of the times. Will also be using this book as a reference in the future for HS my kids. This book is being used by our Bible Study Leader to help us better understand each chapter of The Story for adults. So I bought just to keep them together knowing that my kids can use them, too. Great Book!
