The Story: The Bible’s Grand Narrative of Redemption
One Year Daily Devotional for Students
by Jon Nielson
Summary: Have you ever tried reading through the entire Bible, only to bail partway through a huge list of names or a chapter on infectious skin diseases? The sixty-six books of the Bible may seem pretty different from each other, but they actually tell one story—a story with one Author, one Hero, and one key plotline. (And yes, sometimes skin diseases do play an important part!) This yearlong, daily study of God’s Word guides you through five acts of his grand story of redemption. Although you won’t read every chapter in the Bible, daily Scripture and devotional readings will equip you to understand the unity and development of God’s story and to grow in your personal discipline of Bible study and prayer.
