What I’m Reading

My Thoughts

In Steven James’ book, Story, he combines poetry, scripture and insight to tell our story from creation to redemption. He weaves the Old Testament with the New Testament and then brings all of it to the blanket of reality we have today. 
This book is beautiful from beginning to end
both in the author’s writing and the story he shares.

A few of my favorite quotes:

“Before God created anything, he was daydreaming about me. 
At the dawn of time, I was on his mind. And so were you.”

“The image of God is found in our unity as well as our uniqueness.”

“You’ll never understand Easter without first seeing the chains in your own heart.”

“When Jesus calls us to believe, he calls us to step out on a limb, not to fall back into our comfort zone and rely on our own reasonable opinions. He calls us to a radical commitment, never to a practical religiosity.”

About the Book

With stunning imagery, powerful poetry, and real-life drama, Story is an inspiring journey from the creation of the world to eternity and everything in between. Consummate storyteller Steven James threads together familiar scenes from Scripture that will awaken your faith and inspire you to live in the reality of Christ’s sacrifice. As he untangles the intricacies of the whole story of the Bible, you will rediscover the majesty and the mystery you’ve been missing.
