This book was not what I expected. I expected to have the gospel told in short stories. It is not that type of book, rather it is a book of short chapters that take a passage and apply it to our lives making us look at our stories in different ways and especially in ways that God looks at them. It was really neat once I got into it and I found the last two-thirds much better than the first third. Every three or four chapters there was a break which encouraged the reader to stop and study something more carefully or to pause and pray or to review a passage written by a scholar and see how it pertained to the reader's spiritual life. It was refreshing to look at many spiritual thoughts in a different manner holding them up for new appraisals renewing my perspective on parts of the gospel that I had assumed meant one thing only to see another nugget deep inside. This is an excellent book to use as a short thought provoking read when one wants to think on spiritual matters but not get involved in a long drawn out dissertation.

God * Stories Explorations in the Gospel of God Andrew Wilson 2009 David C Cook Non-fiction/Christian Living/Spiritual Growth Reviewed by Cindy Loven Andrew Wilson has broken the gospel down into bite size, you could say. Nuggets of truth, written in small stories, he calls God Stories. God Stories is a book full of such nuggets. Written in a style similar to the Bible, you begin with Old Testament God Stories and on into the New Testament. Andrew, however breaks his book up into Acts One through Five rather than into Old and New Testament sections. He does a wonderful job of clarifying Bible stories, that might have been confusing to some in King James English. A wonderful book, full of God's truth! Definitely a great read! Sections end with a coffee break, and who can pass up a coffee break? The coffee breaks, give us time for reflection over what we have read and also information to meditate and pray over. Some God Stories titles, The Image of God, The Blueprint, The City and the Tower, The Battle for Beauty, The Wedding, and many many more. This book is not a Bible, and cannot replace a Bible, but it is a book that can help people who struggle to understand the Bible. Definitely a book to recommend to others. 302 pages $14.99 US
