That is what The Story is all about—the story of the Bible, God’s great love affair with humanity.
Condensed into 31 accessible chapters, The Story sweeps you into the unfolding progression of Bible characters and events from Genesis to Revelation. Using the clear, accessible text of the NIV Bible, it allows the stories, poems, and teachings of the Bible to read like a novel.
And like any good story, The Story is filled with intrigue, drama, conflict, romance, and redemption—and this story’s true! From the foreword by Max Lucado and Randy Frazee:
"This book tells the grandest, most compelling story of all time: the story of a true God who loves his children, who established for them a way of salvation and provided a route to eternity. Each story in these 31 chapters reveals the God of grace—the God who speaks; the God who acts; the God who listens; the God whose love for his people culminated in his sacrifice of Jesus, his only Son, to atone for the sins of humanity."

Barbara3 Stars Out Of 5NIV 2011June 5, 2015BarbaraQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0NIV 2011 James 1:7-8 "That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8 Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do." I think it is unnecessary to have to resort to bad grammar. Dealing with the word "man" as mankind and explanation of when the passage means "men/brothers" or "brothers and sisters" etc. in the Preface would be sufficient.
Annie5 Stars Out Of 5Except for the paper it's printed on ....May 11, 2015AnnieQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5I wish I had found this Bible a long time ago. It's so easy to read. I find myself reading for longer periods of time because the story flows like .... a story. The selected Scripture readings make up the greater part of the Bible/book, but the brief summaries that fill in "in-between" make it a smooth flowing chronological story. Reading this Bible is a great way to get the BIG PICTURE in a condensed book.
My only complaint about this Bible is the quality of the paper they've used. It's not like typical Bible paper; it's something cheaper looking yet functional. I assume it was used to cut down on the cost. It's a lightweight book. The imitation leather cover looks nice. I would recommend this book despite it's quality. I very much enjoy reading The Story Bible.

Q: Age group for "The Story" I have a childrens ministry ages 3-12. Would this be an appropriate gift for the children old enough to read?
This edition would work for older Elementary age children to Adult. For an edition of this Bible geared specifically for kids see WW719755, The Story for Kids.
Q: Are the events in this book in chronological order or in books of the Bible order?
The Story presents selected passages from the NIV in Chronological order.
Q: Can I look up a specific scripture reference in The Story? My homeschooled 9th grader is using a curriculum which requires extensive scripture reading. I think The Story would be helpful. My only question is this...if he is assigned to read Proverbs1-20, is there an index that would help him know what pages to read in The Story? Thank you for any experience and help you can offer.
No, there are no chapter/verse references in the text of "The Story". There is a Chart of References in the back noting which selections of the Bible are used for each chapter of the book.
Q: We give Bibles to people that we don't always know personally. Would this be appropriate for a teenager that may not have a Christian background?
This would be easier reading for a young person not familiar with the Bible.
Q: What is the difference between this and the other edition? What is the difference (in content) between this and "The Story: Read the Bible as One Seamless Story from Beginning to End" (CBD Stock No: WW936985 / ISBN: 0310936985)?
This version utilizes the NIV's 2011 update which brings the language more in line with today's vocabulary.
Q: What kind of binding is on the hardcover edition, is it sewn or glued?
This is a glued binding.
Q: Which version of the NIV is used in this study?
This uses the 2011 edition of the NIV.
