From the Back Cover: Recapture the mystery of God’s story
With stunning imagery, powerful poetry, and real-life drama, Story is an inspiring journey from the creation of the world to eternity and everything in between. Consummate storyteller Steven James threads together familiar scenes from Scripture that will awaken your faith and inspire you to live in the reality of Christ’s sacrifice. As he untangles the intricacies of the whole story of the Bible, you will rediscover the majesty and the mystery you’ve been missing.
In “Story” Steven James takes on the task of telling us thirty Bible stories from Creation to Revelation that all fit together to give us a clearer picture of what the Bible is trying to tell us. God is trying to tell us that His story is all one story. Mr. James tells us you can’t have the resurrection without the cross, You can’t have the cross without the birth in Bethlehem and you can’t have the birth without the Garden Of Eden. The Bible is one big narrative and Mr. James, in his thirty stories, shows us how this narrative all comes together. These are remarkable stories that enhance what the Bible tells us and gives us a deeper appreciation of the events depicted. “Story” is not a book that should be read in an hour, if you do you will miss all the flavor of these stories. “Story” also is not a book that will be read once and then put on the shelf. On the contrary it is a book that will be referred back to over and over again. I liked this book a lot and recommend it highly! I think you will enjoy it as well and give it as gifts to your friends and loved ones. They will enjoy it and always remember you every time they read it.
