    Carlos Franceski, an avid reader and learner

    The author uses stories to tell us of the God's story. What has come before, what is present and what comes afterwards? <p> Stories are told to us every day, in our schools, on TV, in advertising, in our relationships, yet we consciously do not think about how are lives are transformed by subtle and not so subtle stories. How many times have you heard that someone went to see the Titanic 10 or 15 times, or seen the Matrix and The Lord of the Rings 5 times. What is it about these stories that intrigues us, scares us, and invites us back for more? Is it a primordial code that is activated each time we encounter love, danger, evil, and hope told through the lenses of someone else? Or, perhaps, in some small way, we know that we live these types of stories everyday? That deep down we want to be brave like little Frodo, wise like Gandolf, passionately in love like Neo and that we want to win in the end. <p> As Eldredge clearly points out, we can have all of this through out faith in Jesus Christ, who possessed all of these qualities and more. The stories that the author cites and the story of Jesus¿ death tug at our hearts, shows us the dark side of humanity, but also shows us that salvation and victory is for the having, all you have to do is just believe. <p> This book is not your traditional theological treatise that quotes scripture from a fire and brimstone standpoint. To some using stories from movies and literature to tell the story of God may amount to sacrilege. To others it may seem like trivializing God¿s role in our lives. I say to both, nothing could be farther from the truth. Eldredge takes an unconventional and refreshing approach to a subject that we all want to know more about, that is, what part do we really play in the story of life.
