Through the course of a year, Ken and John will guide you through 52 of the Bible's most famous stories and reveal how each one is critical to a full understanding of Christian beliefs, values and practices.

How well do everyday Christians know the stories that have shaped their faith? More than just a collection of significant and entertaining stories, The 52 Greatest Stories of the Bible impresses upon readers the beautiful interconnectedness of the varied narratives we find in the Bible. It:
· connects the dots, demonstrating how each individual story is really one chapter in the larger story
· shows how Jesus, especially his death and resurrection, is the point of the story, even when the Son of God is not a key player
· helps readers build a biblical worldview that answers the ultimate questions of life
Readers will gain a better grasp of the whole story of Scripture and, most importantly, why these stories are the ones God chose to preserve for us through the writers of the Bible.
