I had tried multiple times to read the bible and other biblical books. However I always got lost and confused. i spoke to my pastor about my struggle and wanting to be a better Christian and he allowed me to borrow this book. I loved it so much I had to buy my own copy! This book is so easy to read as its written in current verbage. its chronological so as not to get confused with what happened when, where and to whom. It is not only informative its opened my understanding and relationship with God and Jesus. I wish i had found this book years ago. I HIGHLY suggest this book to so many people! I plan on rereading it again just because! What are you waitng for? Get this book, you won't regret it!
I enjoyed the format of "The Story" and found it an easy read. For the beginner or seasoned reader, "The Story" developed and maintained a story line that lead the reader through the bible in a way that no other book does. It helped bring life to biblical characters, and color to a stark landscape of black words on a white page. It helped the reader imagine the actual event, painting a picture of history that is lost in more academic sources. A great book to introduce people to the bible in an easy to read format.
