Oh how I wish I'd had a book like The Story long ago to shape my understanding of what the Bible is all about! What a help to those of us who have oftentimes failed in our efforts to read through the Bible because we've struggled to understand what we were reading and eventually gave up. The Story provides concise, clear, brief readings that will help anyone and everyone deepen their understanding of the big story of the Bible.
Clear, compelling, and Christ centered. This book will help you to read think and pray your way through the Bible.
Reading the Bible consistently is an important discipline. This book will help young people by providing them with a framework and accessible commentary on various passages of the Bible underneath an overall gospel rubric.
How do we explain all the beauty and all the brokenness we see in this world? How do we explain the beauty and brokenness we see in ourselves? There is only one story that can answer these questions, and God tells us this epic story in his word. Jon Nielson has introduced an incredible resource for students to thoughtfully read the Bible. It's true to Scripture, engaging, and concise yet thorough. Parents, give this book to your children and borrow it from their nightstand often!
"Jon Nielson's biblical instincts are right - and as a result, your daily bible reading times just got better! This one year devotional presents the big picture of the Bible in ways that press home a greater devotion to God. My own kids are in their teens and twenties, and I want them all to use it."
One of the most gospel centered student devotionals I have read. A great tool for high school students that is redemptive-historical and practically relevant devotional for students.
