5 Stars Out Of 5
The Story, NKJV
April 23, 2016
I've had this book for a few years and find it extremely easy to read. Sections of Scripture are quoted accurately, with composed transitions inserted between the sections of Scripture to link them together more quickly while still remaining easy to follow. This is not the entire Bible quoted directly, and is not meant to be. It's sort of a condensed version which includes the main stories, so it's much faster to read. It gives a wonderful overview of the Bible, especially helpful to those who've never read the Bible in its entirety, and is a great read for those who have. When you've read it, you feel like you've had a nice refresher course. :-)
I've purchased several of these for gifts, along with a couple of the NIV84 version of The Story. The format of both is like that of a regular book, very inviting to pick up and read. They make great gifts for any Christian, and also for the non-believer, who might just read a "regular (-looking) book."
While of course not meant as a substitute for your complete Bible, I think this is a very well done product. The price is nice too!
