Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Fully two stories in one. "

    This is a well deserved read/listen. It definitely clears up some less than clear sections of the bible (Old Testament in particular). I particularly like the way Randy correlates similar modern day stories to show current relevance. I've read other material of Randy's and found him to be easy to understand, concise with a beautiful audio voice. Here's my only problem and the reason I gave his performance only three stars. He has a habit of letting his voice drop off at the end of the sentence. Often! Maybe 6 out of 10 times. This is significant! You find yourself straining to hear. And, if there's any significant background noise (lawn mowers, road noise, barking dogs, etc.) you have to turn up the volume higher than you'd normally want just to catch the last word or two. Perhaps recording with something that monitors the level of volume would be helpful. If it's problematic for you, I suggest reading the book.

    "Outstanding"
    What made the experience of listening to The Heart of the Story the most enjoyable?

    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.


    What does Randy Frazee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Amazing voice to want to listen to again and again.
