This is the first book I've read in many years so you can take my review knowing that. I found that the way the author put together the "greatest story ever told" made it much easier to
connect a lot that I've read in the Bible. I recommend this to anyone who wants to understand the Bible better or get a basic knowledge of the Bible. The author provides some insight and explanations to help you understand more clearly the stories. As I read the book my 2nd grade son was also intrigued and would climb on my lap and insist I let him read with me. He is a good reader and except for some Names and Places (who doesn't have a problem with some of those in the Bible) he could read and understand it. We would spend time looking up some of the places on a modern map to show him this story took place here on earth and it was a real place we were reading about in this true story. WIN! WIN! He was getting the message of the Bible and we were reading together and getting to know God. We both enjoyed it.
Our church is using this book for a series of sermons and it has been great. The price was exceptional. Received it in a fast timely manner. Thanks again - always use Christian book store for our orders.
This format is an excellent tool for introducing either a new Christian, or a non-Christian who is interested in learning what we believe, into the Story our Bible tells. Written as a novel, and in the plain language of the NIV, the reader is easily caught up in the story as the adventure of the Bible unfolds and Bible characters come to life in a fashion easily understood and portrayed.
