"Nothing is more urgent for the church today than learning to live in the story of the Bible. This delightful little book will enable the young reader to hear God's story in contemporary language and imagery. In fact, any Christian could benefit from taking some time to enjoy this creative little summary of the story of salvation. I heartily recommend this creative book as a faithful and appealing sketch of the true story of the world."

"Our world is directionless and lost. Like the proverbial bull in a China shop, our culture rampages forward with seemingly no thought for consequence, cost or coherence. What we desperately lack is a story, an expansive framework of meaning which brings wholeness, purpose and life. The Insect and the Buffalo is a brilliant and concise reminder that tucked away at the back of our dusty bookshelves, is such a life breathing story. Allpress and Shamy coax us to step back, look up and drink in the grandeur the narrative arc of redemption that is found in the collection of books known as the bible. Essential reading for anyone engaged in ministry and mission in the 21st century West."

"When the Bible is reduced to motivational maxims, the credibility of faith itself is on the line. We need a generation of leaders who know the historical Gospel and who read the Bible intelligently in the light of it. The Insect and the Buffalo is exactly what we needed. Short, witty, sensible, and always geared to the big story. There is nothing like it. Nothing. Get it and read it."
