Publisher's Summary

The Heart of the Story will help you see God's Word in a new and inspiring light. In the Bible's seemingly disconnected stories you'll discover one grand, unfolding epic - God's story from Genesis onward, and your own story contained within it.

To understand the Bible, says author and pastor Randy Frazee, you need bifocal lenses, because two perspectives are involved. The Lower Story, our story, is actually many stories of men and women interacting with God in the daily course of life. The Upper Story is God's story, the tale of his great, overarching purpose that fits all the individual stories together like panels in one unified mural.

In 31 chapters, The Heart of the Story will open your eyes to God's master-plan unfolding in the lives of the Bible's characters - and in your own life. Discover the heart of God's Upper Story, and the joy that comes as you align your story with God's.

Helped me understand God better!

LOVED this book. I was so touched and humbled by the way Randy tells the stories of the bible. He reminds us that we are part of God's story! I loved the ending...how he painted us right into God's plan. Wonderful.

Fantastic Book for the Family

My son and I enjoyed listening this book early in the morning before he caught the bus for school. It helped both of us grow in our faith.

I highly recommend it!

The whole book, from start to finish, was an awesome and eye opening experience. God's love is illustrated in every story presented. I'm now looking for more books by the author

A truly lovely & unique telling

I cannot recommend this book enough. Whether you are a Christian or curious about what it means to be a believer, let Frazee take you on a journey from creation to the first chapter in a new world. The author uses the Old and New Testament books of the Bible to explain God’s desire to live with His people and have a relationship with them; most importantly how YOU fit into all of it. ~ Tracie Thompson

Not impressed

No thank you. I would much rather read the Bible than listen to someone try to explain the Bible. Especially when they are doing a horrible job at it too!
Wow! Wish I could return this one and the love story one too!!
Wasted two credits!
