Product Description

The Bible contains many of the most fantastic and memorable stories of all time--the great flood, David and Goliath, the empty tomb. These stories are packed with enough verve and vitality to astound and inspire readers on their own. Yet when read as parts of a larger, grander story, each of these stories reveals added depths of artistry and meaning. Still, it is easy to lose sight of how the Bible's narrative threads weave together into one beautiful tapestry.

In Story of Stories readers join Karen Lee-Thorp on a guided tour of Scripture where she retells the Bible's major stories, draws out the significance of overlooked subtleties and shows how individual vignettes contribute to Scripture's overarching story of redemption. Readers will find a renewed appreciation for the breadth and depth of the greatest story ever told in these pages.

Written with both individuals and groups in mind, this revised and expanded edition includes end-of-chapter reflection questions and a leader's guide for facilitating discussions.

Endorsements

Lee-Thorp's ambitious endeavor covers the entire scope of the biblical narrative while maintaining accessibility and readability. Her guided tour is packed with historical and cultural background and theological reflection. Reading Story of Stories will encourage a closer reading of Scripture and remind God's people that we are each 'part of a tale much bigger' than our own.
-Lindsay Olesberg,
Scripture training specialist, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, author of The Bible Study Handbook: A Comprehensive Guide for an Essential Practice

Most of our Bible originated in acts of storytelling, but somewhere along the line many of us lose the story line and end up with a file drawer full of doctrines and dates and study notes. But God, in his Scriptures, is first of all a storyteller, elaborating the plot of his saving ways among us and pulling our stories into The Story. Karen Lee-Thorp recovers the story for us.
-Eugene H. Peterson,
professor emeritus of spiritual theology at Regent College and author of The Message

Story of Stories is one of the most valuable books I have ever used for helping new Christians grow. As they grapple with the complexities of biblical truth, this book can quickly give them the big picture. Karen Lee-Thorp has conveyed the dramatic plot that flows from Genesis to Revelation with keen insight and wit. I've lost count of how many copies I've given away.
-Jim Petersen,
associate to the general director of The Navigators

Karen Lee-Thorp invites the reader into the drama of the biblical story. Her masterful hand guides us to a clear understanding of the flow of the text, and we stand in awe as we see, perhaps for the first time, how the Bible truly is an organic whole with One Author.
-Tremper Longman III,
Robert H. Gundry Professor of Biblical Studies at Westmont College

Karen is no stranger to tragedy. It is this Story of Stories that gives lives hope and meaning. This retelling is crystal-clear, poignant and gently humorous. Anyone who finds the kings/prophets confusing (or even boring) will see them come alive in this book. The New Testament letters are also portrayed in story form. Discussion questions make this book valuable for personal study or Bible study groups.
-Christine Dillon,
author of Telling the Gospel Through Story

Told in the most conversational, down-to-earth language, this book captures the Story of all stories with energetic pace, robust detail and scholarly insight. Karen Lee-Thorp has brought to life the sweeping arc of the biblical story, providing readers a sense of the drama and divine hand in human history. You will feel like the pieces of the puzzle have come together after you read it. I highly recommend it!
-Beth Booram,
author of several books including Awaken Your Senses

    My husband picked this book up to "look it over". He didn't put it down until he had read about a quarter of it! And is continuing to read it. He wants us to use it for the adult Sunday School class we lead. In other words, it is extremely well written and accomplishes its purpose; providing a fascinating "guided tour" of the greatest story ever told.
