The Story

Cross of Glory is reading The Story: The Bible as One Continuing Story of God and His People.

What is The Story? (from

“The Story is an abridged, chronological Bible that reads like a novel. There are no verse references, and Scripture segments are seamlessly woven together with transition text into a single grand narrative. For those intimidated or overwhelmed by the unabridged Bible, The Story helps people understand God’s Word more fully and engage with it more easily.

“Simple, accessible, and easy to use, churches are finding The Story a powerful way to engage their people in Bible reading like never before. As The Story brings the Bible to life, the broad scope of God’s message will penetrate hearts. People of all ages will be swept up in the story of God’s love and God’s plan for their lives.”

How’s it Going to Go?

Each week, we will read one chapter in the book. Pastor Dana will post a Reading Guide and (for some weeks) Study Resources to help you get the most from your reading. We will hear a sermon on that chapter on the following Sunday. Study groups are being formed and more information will be available shortly.
