Story: Our Journey of Heartache and Grace from Eden to Evermore by Steven James - REVIEWED

About the Book: (from Revell)

Recapture the mystery of God's story

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.

My Thoughts:
I have been a huge fan of Steven James since I read his first suspense novel in the Patrick Bowers series. HUGE FAN! Now, after reading Story, I’m an ever BIGGER fan! (if that is even possible!) His words describing his relationship with Christ, the transforming power of God’s Word, his poetic response to that transformation in his own life….I am just blown away!! James is a master word smith, and his insight is so beautiful and so real that your heart is both moved and changed as he shares his thoughts on the mystery of real relationship with Christ.

This is an unusual book, in that it’s not a dry thematic approach to God’s Word. James’ approach is to respond in Holy reverence, alongside raw wonder at the things God’s Word reveals about both God and His creation – all of it! It is both profound and deeply personal.

I have an entirely new respect for my favorite suspense author! My heart has been touched and changed. We do serve an amazing GOD!!! I'm so glad He has gifted Steven James with the words to express that wondrous relationship!
