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.”

MollysMomRichmond Hill, Ontario, CanadaAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great overview of the BibleAugust 16, 2016MollysMomRichmond Hill, Ontario, CanadaAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I purchased copies of The Story Bible specifically to give to some new believers who were intimidated by the thought of reading and understanding the complete Bible, but who wanted to gain an understanding of the essence of this incredible story. Written in a format and style that is comfortable for beginners (and all readers), The Story Bible has good chapter breaks that are natural resting spots to encourage reflection and discussion. The Story Bible also serves as a good refresher of many of the highlights of the complete Bible text for those already familiar with it; it does not and cannot replace the actual Bible, but the authors never intended it to do so.
The new believers that I gave the copies to were really pleased to have something they felt comfortable with and I intend to purchase more copies of The Story Bible to encourage more people to get to know, understand and cherish the Bible and all it stands for.

seekerGender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5The Story, NIV version(s)April 23, 2016seekerGender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5First, this latest NIV edition apparently uses the 2011 NIV. I've purchased several copies of the older one that used the NIV84, which I much prefer over the 2011, less literal/more politically correct, edition. The Story NIV84 might no longer be available. My review is actually for that edition, but will still apply to this one I think. I've also purchased quite a few of The Story NKJV, which is the version I use. I left a more detailed review on that product page. The other copies I bought were given as gifts. Having purchased so many copies to share, obviously I think The Story is a good product.
The Story quotes sections of Scripture and links them together with composed transitions. Think of it as a condensed version of the Bible, or a nice refresher course. The major stories of the Bible are covered, but the entire Bible is not directly quoted. The hardback edition is in the same format as that of regular books, very inviting and easy to read.
While my favorite edition of The Story is the current NKJV, and my second-favorite is the discontinued (?) NIV84 edition, this version is still a great product at a nice price. Of course, The Story is not meant to be a substitute for reading your complete Bible.
