The Heart of the Story: A Book Review

About The Book:


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.

My Review:


With a very easy to read writing style, Frazee will take you on a journey through the Bible that I guarantee you have not been on. He shows you the Bible in ways that you can so easily apply to your own life, yet challenges you throughout the book.


A very quick read, The Heart Of Story, is a perfect read to encourage, inspire and challenge you in your walk with God!


I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
