I'm Giving Away "The Story NIV"!

The Story, NIV: The Bible as One Continuing Story of God and His PeopleI'm very happy to announce I'm giving away one copy of The Story, NIV the Bible as one continuing Story on Friday, August 5th! I love The Story - it gives us the opportunity to experience the Bible like we never have before! As Zondervan says, "'The Greatest Story Ever Told' is more than just a clichĂ©. God goes 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 NIV Bible, 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—and this story's true!"

I - like many of you - have read through the Bible many times, but the Story gave me the opportunity to see the Bible in a chronological sweep of the Story of God, His love, grace and mercy and how He went to incredible lengths to provide a way for me to know and walk with Him . . . which is the point of the Bible. The Story, just makes it easier for us to see this! The Story is available in this NIV edition, an editor for Teens - which I will be giving away at another time - and in two editions for children . . . check my other blog, grandma's cookie jar for info on my drawing for the children's editions of the Story!

Zondervan sent me the Story for review and they sent an additional copy for me to give away! If you have "liked" About the Children's Department using the tab in the "find us on facebook box", then you are entered in the drawing for the Story! If you have not "liked" us yet, please take a moment to do so and you will be entered in my give-away!
