Like a mosaic forms a unified work of art from many parts, the Bible forms a glorious whole from the stories of men and women interacting with God. In The Heart of the Story, Randy Frazee highlights 31 key narratives from Scripture that point to God's master plan for the world and our lives. Frazee also shows how two perspectives are involved to understand the Bible--the Lower Story, our story, and the Upper Story--God's story, and His overarching purpose that unites them. Discover the joy that comes as you align your story with God's.
The Heart of the Story will help you see God's Word in a new and inspiring light. In the Bible's seemingly disconnected stories you'll discover one grand, unfolding epic---God's story from Genesis onward, and your own story contained within it. To understand the Bible, says author and pastor Randy Frazee, you need bifocal lenses, because two perspectives are involved. The Lower Story, our story, is actually many stories of men and women interacting with God in the daily course of life. The Upper Story is God's story, the tale of his great, overarching purpose that fits all the individual stories together like panels in one unified mural. In 31 chapters, The Heart of the Story will open your eyes to God's master-plan unfolding in the lives of the Bible's characters---and in your own life. Discover the heart of God's Upper Story, and the joy that comes as you align your story with God's.
