A STORY OF GOD AND ALL OF US is a sweeping narrative that dramatises some of the most important events and characters in the Bible. The book reads like a fine novel, dramatising the sweep of biblical events, making the men and women of scripture come alive in vivid detail and dialogue. All are historically and theologically accurate. The Bible, a ten-hour mini-series on the History Channel will be based on the story, and the script has been reviewed by a number of Christian church leaders and seminarians for authenticity. Many prominent biblical characters will be portrayed in the story: Moses, David, Daniel, John the Baptist and of course, Jesus. The book will also highlight the prophetic significance of the empires that controlled Israel (Egyptians, Babylonians, Persians and Romans), as well as the many Old Testament prophecies of the Messiah.

Patience with God

For all the debate about belief and nonbelief in today’s world—and how everyone becomes pigeonholed by one or the other— Tomáš Halík teaches that God requires us to persevere with our doubts, carry them in our hearts, and allow them to lead us to maturity. For Halík, patience is the main difference between faith and atheism. Faith, hope, and love are three aspects of patience in the face of God’s silence, which is interpreted as “the death of God” by atheists and is not taken seriously enough by fundamentalists. Using the gospel story of Jesus’s encounter with Zacchaeus, Halík issues an invitation to all people who stand (like Zacchaeus did) on the sideline—curious but noncommittal. The fact that Jesus gravitated to the poor and the marginalized means that he also has a special place in his heart for diligent seekers on the margins of the community of believers.

God is already at work in your life--whether or not you recognize it. Most people are too busy to see or hear God and most Christians lack the intentional practice of listening to the stories of outsiders. In Echoing the Story, Brady Bryce provides a simple way for people to come together and tell the scattered stories of their lives in order to imagine them as part of a bigger story. His innovative, narrative approach invites curious skeptics, casual followers of God, and committed disciples of Jesus into community through listening to shared stories. If you are interested in exploring the entire story of the Bible, if you wonder how its stories fit together, or if you simply want to experience God in the ordinariness of your life, then this reliable guide can lead you in listening to the echoes of God. Part spiritual formation, part discipleship, part journey through the Bible--this guidebook is an experience in hearing the word of God in life. You can learn the skill of echoing the story through listening in this informative, experiential, and missional process. As participants in the story we can begin to imagine our everyday lives as stories oriented toward God.
