Welcome to the Story: Reading, Loving, and Living God's Word
Title: Welcome to the Story: Reading, Loving, and Living God's Word
Stephen Nichols wants to help readers experience the Bible more fully. He writes: “We have been given a book that is unlike any other book in human history, a book that transcends all human wisdom, insight, and expertise. We have been given the Word of God, the words of eternal life. And we, all of us, are invited to take up and read these words.”
Welcome to the Story teaches believers not only how to read the Bible, but how to read it in such a way that it permeates their lives—reading, loving, and living God’s Word. Discussion includes an explanation of the four “chapters” of the biblical narrative—creation, fall, redemption, and restoration—guidelines on how to interpret Scripture, why we’re to love God’s Word, and how we’re to live and proclaim the story in word, deed, and mission.
This practical guide to reading the Bible is a great resource for young and new believers and those wanting to get more out of God’s Word.
