An excellent way to get the main points of the Bible in a much shorter time. Especially good as a means to get through the Old Testament; especially when many who start reading the Bible stop at Leviticus. [I had an old Bible rebound once and had them put the New Testament first]. As my mission effort I have thus far given away about 120 standard size print copies of " The Story"s. In the last 2 years. The large print issues do not seem to have a much larger print than the standard. I wish there was more from the Epistles in The Story. Also wish they would publish just a New Testament of The Story. It could have a prelude on the Old Testament in italics. [I know about "The Story of Jesus"].
I wish I had found this Bible a long time ago. It's so easy to read. I find myself reading for longer periods of time because the story flows like .... a story. The selected Scripture readings make up the greater part of the Bible/book, but the brief summaries that fill in "in-between" make it a smooth flowing chronological story. Reading this Bible is a great way to get the BIG PICTURE in a condensed book.
My only complaint about this Bible is the quality of the paper they've used. It's not like typical Bible paper; it's something cheaper looking yet functional. I assume it was used to cut down on the cost. It's a lightweight book. The imitation leather cover looks nice. I would recommend this book despite it's quality. I very much enjoy reading The Story Bible.
