"A journey full of wonder, tears, joy, despair, and hope revealed through the eyes and heart of a storyteller."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"It is a potpourri of language and imagery, mingled to delicious effect, calling the reader to see the gospel story with fresh eyes, breaking through the numbness of familiarity to expose the wonder and adventure God offers. This highly original retelling of the Scripture is often beautiful, often haunting, and thoroughly compelling. It is a reminder that Christ's promise of 'life, anew' is constantly with us, then, now, and always."--BookPage

"I loved it so much that I am going right out to buy it so that I can loan it out to people. Beautiful poetry. The story I have always known and wanted to tell, told as I have imagined telling it. Using stories, poetry, memories, scriptures, and a childlike wonderment that is disarming and playful. I wish I had written it. Simply fantastic."

"Storyteller Steven James assumes an enormous responsibility in this slim volume: retelling the entire story of redemption for a postmodern audience that needs to hear--and experience--that story in a fresh and powerful way. In the hands of a lesser writer, such a task could easily fall flat. Not so with James. Through his honest prose and beautiful poetry, he delivers on the promise inherent in the book's subtitle. He does indeed enable us to recapture the mystery. Everything in this book--every image, every metaphor, every thought, every sentence--points the way to the cross and the resurrection and the profound love of God. Story resonates with both the postmodern seeker and the mature Christian who longs for a fresh experience with God."

"James's luxuriant writing is deeply perceptive of the divinity, humanity, and mystery of Christ. The book is an astonishingly personal journey of God's love for weak, fallen humanity. Comparing the Bible story to a true fairy tale, we're called to awaken with Christ."--CBA Retailers + Resources

"The greatest story ever told--that of Jesus--is retold in this book, Story, by one of America's most brilliant young authors, Steven James. His poetry, written in short lines with no caps, is lyrical and powerful--beautiful and often painful to read. If you want a book to make you view Jesus and the story of the Bible from a whole different vantage point, to feel his pain and wonder of it again, this is that book to savor and treasure."

"The greatest story ever told is recapped in short excerpts, building verse-by-verse in a modern fashion, as the reader journeys through this cleverly crafted book. From the manger to the cross, James connects the dots and uses modern-day examples to create a trendy devotional-like book that is an easy yet enjoyable read."--CCM Magazine

"James has a gift of relating the story of the Bible to life today. In this incredible book, professional storyteller Steven James tackles the greatest story of them all: the story of redemption. James's grasp of language is breathtaking and his power of description unequaled."--National Women's Ministries Department of the Assemblies of God

"Story is a book that will give you a new perspective on the intricately woven tales the Bible offers. Both deep enough for longtime believers and simple enough for the curious, Steven James has done a good job making this information interesting, humorous, understandable, and relevant."

"Story retells the Christian story in a way that is fresh and brings new life. After hearing the Easter story in drab ways for years, it can lose its punch. Use Story to breathe new life into the story of Christ's death and resurrection."--Relevant Media Group
