The Heart of the Story will help you see God's Word in a new and inspiring light. In the Bible's seemingly disconnected stories you'll discover one grand, unfolding epic - God's story from Genesis onward, and your own story contained within it.
To understand the Bible, says author and pastor Randy Frazee, you need bifocal lenses, because two perspectives are involved. The Lower Story, our story, is actually many stories of men and women interacting with God in the daily course of life. The Upper Story is God's story, the tale of his great, overarching purpose that fits all the individual stories together like panels in one unified mural.
In 31 chapters, The Heart of the Story will open your eyes to God's master-plan unfolding in the lives of the Bible's characters - and in your own life. Discover the heart of God's Upper Story, and the joy that comes as you align your story with God's.

LOVED this book. I was so touched and humbled by the way Randy tells the stories of the bible. He reminds us that we are part of God's story! I loved the ending...how he painted us right into God's plan. Wonderful.
There are numerous good books reflecting on the bible and it's meaning. What makes this one particularly different is the way the author chose to share the upper story (what it means to God) and the lower story (what it means to us). I think often we tend to concentrate on the latter. You may want to keep your bible handy as you read this but probably only to read further details; the author is both clear and concise. I'll definitely take a look at some of his other works. Will highly recommend this to others!
Randy has not only the gift to put such meaning to God's words, but the gift of reading with a soft, meaningful voice. I have listened to this again and again and enjoy each experience as I absorb God's word. This book is truly a blessing to read and listen to.
Amazing voice to want to listen to again and again.
