The Bible is an essential part of the Christian experience, establishing and instructing our lives in the faith. In its pages are verses of praise, structures and guidelines of daily living, and encouraging words of inspiration. Held within its pages are also stories that show the history of God's work among his people and actions of the great heroes of our common faith.
Too often, we only hear the stories of the Bible in ways that relate to moral lessons and instruction, and while this is an appropriate use, the stories themselves, in their raw, original narrative, do an exceptional job of illuminating the relationship between God and his people.
In Bible Stories for New Christians, I strip out any commentary and simply tell these stories. This is essential, because a strong background in these stories allows for deeper understanding of concepts in Christian discipleship such as sanctification, justification, and redemption.
Whether you are a new Christian who has never heard these stories before, or a long-time believer looking to connect to the Bible in a fresh way, this book is for you.
