Publisher's Description

How would you explain your life to a stranger?

When strangers meet today, they often ask not, "What do you do?" but, "What is your story?" Everybody on the planet believes some larger story in order to make sense of the smaller story of his or her life. We want our lives to fit within a larger plot—a plot full of history, forward movement, and future.

So, the better question to ask is, "What sort of story are you in?"

Most people believe false stories that leave them disillusioned, enslaved, and hopeless. Secular stories of chasing success and religious stories of doing good works leave us feeling exhausted and empty. Only Christianity offers a story that's big enough to make sense of both the beauty and brokenness in our lives and in our world.

Author Bio

JUSTIN BUZZARD is founder and lead pastor of Garden City Church in Silicon Valley, California. He has been dating his wife for twelve years and is the father of three young sons. Justin speaks widely, writes at www.JustinBuzzard.net, and is the author of The Big Story, Why Cities Matter, Date Your Wife, John: A 12-Week Study, and Consider Jesus.

Editorial Reviews

To write a book with two distinct audiences in mind—Christian and non-Christian—is no easy task, but Buzzard has done a fine job. Believers in particular will find helpful tips for using "the big story" to frame evangelistic conversations. Non-Christian readers should benefit from its generally solid overview of the major beats of the story of redemption. This is a good book that will hopefully be used to strengthen many and bring others to their knees in faith before Jesus.
Aaron Armstrong, review for The Gospel Coalition


The Big Story has a powerful message for young adults searching for a connection between their own lives and the message of the Scriptures. Buzzard highlights his main points by using the Bible as well as personal examples and quotations from men and women throughout history. This book challenges readers to learn about their faith and put it into action.
Congregational Libraries Today, Volume XIVII, Number 1

Buzzard gets it right. Life is Story. And he connects that to the Big Story of the Gospel in helping readers find the purpose and direction their lives.
