Publisher's Summary

This dramatic retelling of the gospel illuminates the unique role we can play in the amazing story God is telling. 

Sure, good things happen, sometimes beautiful things. But tragic things happen too. What does it mean? We find ourselves in the middle of a story that is sometimes wonderful, sometimes awful, usually a confusing mixture of both, and we haven’t a clue how to make sense of it all. No wonder we keep losing heart. 

We need to know the rest of the story. 

For when we were born, we were born into the midst of a great story begun before the dawn of time. A story of adventure, of risk and loss, heroism...and betrayal. A story where good is warring against evil, danger lurks around every corner, and glorious deeds wait to be done. Think of all those stories you’ve ever loved. There’s a reason they stirred your heart. They’ve been trying to tell you about the true Epic ever since you were young. 

There is a larger story and you have a crucial role to play.

The Hero's Journey is God's Story

In fiction writing there is a pattern called the Hero's Journey that seemingly all wildly successful epic stories follow. The author does an excellent job of showing how this model applies to most epic of all stories. Starting before this world existed and ending after its final day, he shows how the heart of every human being is hard wired to identify with the story of God.
