Book Review - "Story"

Steven James, author of the Patrick Bowers series, has written a book that takes the reader on a journey throughout the entire Bible from Eden to eternity.  "Story: Our Journey of Heartache and Grace from Eden to Evermore," is a book to really take your time reading and working through as there is so much on each page and so much to be gained even if you are familiar with the Bible and the stories included in it. 
"Story" includes some of the more common well-known Bible stories; however there are chapters devoted to lesser known details contained throughout the story and there is so much included in each of the chapters.  James really pulls the reader into the story with the poetic style of writing, the details and the emotion that is included. I feel like I learned a lot from reading this and I often stopped and went back and reread a paragraph as it was a lot to take in in just one reading or I would be interrupted and have to/want to go back.  I think this book would be a great one to use with a small group as it would lead to great discussions.  I recommend this book for anyone wanting to gain a new perspective or learn something new or just want to spend more time in God's Word.

  1. Hey, Kristie,

    I know that you have been a part of one of my blog tours in the past, so I wanted to contact you to see if you would be interested again.
    I am putting together a blog tour for my upcoming e-book, A Light in the Window: An Irish Christmas Love Story, which is actually the prequel for the Marcy and Patrick O'Connor, the parents in my Daughters of Boston and Winds of Change series. If you think you would like to participate, please contact me through my website as I do not know your last name or have your e-mail, okay?

    Thanks SO much!!
