In Meeting the Mystery: Seeing Jesus Through the Eyes of the People He Met, youll meet some of those people and their stories retold by master storyteller, Steven James. Sometimes we know their names; sometimes we dont. Sometimes we know how their stories ended; sometimes theyve disappeared into the sands of time. In every case, though, the stories youre about to read are based on actual, true events.
All of these storytellers met the Story himself. Much of the material is drawn directly from Scripture. Other stories are more speculative. Details and dialogue are sometimes added to make it easier to see and hear the stories unfold. But great care is taken in each story to be faithful as possible to both the spirit and intent of the biblical record.
Jesus knew that the best way to teach people the truth was to wrap it up in a story. As you read these stories, youll discover the truth for yourself. The truth about Jesus. The truth about the Mystery. And theres no turning back. Once youve been shown the truth that lies at the heart of the Mystery, once youve met him for yourself, youll never be the same again.
