Your answer
The Bible as The Story of God
Consider this about the Bible:

The Bible is the greatest story ever told and still being told.

The story told in the Bible is the story of God’s unending love for all creation.
Even more, the story told in the Bible is still being written and God wants to use us!

When we read the Bible, we better learn how to play our part in this incredible story.
Let’s dig into the different parts of the Bible to see what God has for us.
