I've found this to help move the bible "along" for me. (It helps not to go through the begats again!) It's easy reading...easy understanding. A really good start for someone who has put off reading the bible through!

Written like a novel and very interesting and easy to understand. Highly recommend!

This is a great way to read the Bible. It's basically the short version in novel format. It hits all the highlights and most important stories, leaving out the parts that turn people off from reading the Bible (begat, begat, begat). Definitely recommend.

I highly doubt that The Story was written to be a substitute for the Bible. Nothing will ever take its place. It is a supplement. Something to read in addition to Gods Word. For one it cant be used as a Holy Bible is used theres no reference guide. No books, chapters, or verse indicators. The bible can be hard to understand and i think this was written as a gate to Gods Word . Start people off with something easy then get into the deep stuff. Its simply the story. As long as people understand that this is NOT the bible and just an aid to it i dont see what the problem is.

This is great, gets through the main facts in each chapter. Covers the Bible in 6mos. We are using it along with our bible study at church.

our whole church is going through this study of the Bible chapter by chapter and includes the kids with versions of "The Story" written especially for different ages. It's a book thats easy to read and interesting enough to re-read.

This is a wonderful way to go through the story of the Bible. Its not meant to be or replace the Bible. It is an easy read. If you want an even easier read, get The Heart of The Story. Im reading them together and am getting a whole new level of understanding.

I am not done reading the book but about one third the way through it. I love the fact that it is written in sequence of time and it starts tieing things together that I had not noticed before. I know what the different books of the Bible say but many times never tied the persons being mentioned together, so it is great to see the individuals in a more complete light of their life and influence and relationship to God.

Our church is doing "The Story" for its study classes. I love the book it is easy to read and follow. It has a great DVD that goes along with the book. You do have to remember though it is an overview of the bible. It was written so it is easier to read the Bible. If you are not using the DVD that goes with the book you are missing out on the Study.

I love the flow of this narrative version of the Word. This would be a great first Bible for new believers or youth.

I am continually trying to understand and learn the Word and connect with the Spirit and God. The Story was introduced to me at my church as the minister used it as a learning tool for sermon. It's a great way to read about the Old Testament in more laymen terms.

An easy read! Great for anyone new to the faith, or interested to know about bible narratives.

I really wanted to like this. Many of my favorite passages were watered down. However, as a quick overview it was ok. I especially enjoyed the 1 st part of the New Testament and found most of the Old to be tedious. Therefore the 3 stars.

It is the story. Not all perfect but a good start. To be followed by the Gospel. It will get you over some difficult to understand areas.

Really enjoy reading The Story - excellent to have handy while waiting in different places. Definitely not a substitute for The Bible, but a great read.

This is a great way to read the Bible story without struggling through some of the long and arduous passages. It is written like a novel and easy to read. I have read through the Bible each year for the past 6 years, but am reading The Story this year and am enjoying it. Give it as a gift to someone you care about.

This was a fantastic read. I now understand so much more of what went on in the Bible. It has given me a much different perspective on God. How he didn't abandon the human race long ago shows us how loving and patient God he truly is. Highly recommend this one!

A condensed version of the Bible. Very shortened version. Seemed to follow the tv mini series The Bible but since this came out before, who copied whom? A great way to strengthen your knowledge of the Bible in about 350 pages.
