'The Greatest Story Ever Told' is more than just a cliche.
God has gone to great lengths to rescue lost and hurting people. That is what The Story is all about--the story of the Bible, God's great love affair with humanity. Condensed into 31 accessible chapters, The Story sweeps you into the unfolding progression of Bible characters and events from Genesis to Revelation.
Using the clear, accurate, and easy-to-understand text of the New International Version, it allows the stories, poems, and teachings of the Bible to read like a novel.
And like any good story, The Story is filled with intrigue, drama, conflict, romance, and redemption.
The Story includes:
*The story of the Bible -in its own words.
Selections from the NIV Bible with short transitions to connect the reader to the continuing story.
*Events, characters and teachings of the Bible arranged chronologically.
*Time lines of Bible events.
*Bible text from the fully revised and updated New International Version (NIV).

The StoryMary Bartholomew, via The Good Book Stall
This edition of The Story deliberately targets a UK readership by using the British text edition of the NIV, New International Version, of the Bible. This makes for a comfortable read without the jarring of unfamiliar spelling or phrasing.
Much of the book is taken directly from the Bible and these passages are spaced, to indicate that a part of the Biblical passage has been omitted, and the Bible passages are linked with text in italics, written to help the continuity of The Story. The result is a clear and absorbing narrative. Much of it very familiar to regular Bible readers, but making it equally accessible to one who is coming to the Bible for the first time.
Inevitably parts of the Bible have had to be left out, the book would not fulfil its purpose otherwise, and Yes, it is ideal for introducing a new Christian or a seeker to the riches of the Bible, but it also serves as a refresher course for those who think they already understand the full picture. It sent me hurrying to my Bible when I came across a statement or a name I was unsure about, and this is perhaps the books greatest gift, to send the reader to the full bible to learn more.
