From the Publisher:

Biblical Christianity is more than just another private religious view. It’s more than just a personal relationship with God or a source of moral teaching.

Christianity is a picture of reality.

It explains why the world is the way it is. When the pieces of this puzzle are properly assembled, we see the big picture clearly. Christianity is a true story of how the world began, why the world is the way it is, what role humans play in the drama, and how all the plotlines of the story are resolved in the end.

In The Story of Reality, bestselling author and host of Stand to Reason, Gregory Koukl, explains the five words that form the narrative backbone of the Christian story. He identifies the most important things that happen in the story in the order they take place:

If you are already a Christian, do you know and understand the biblical story? And for those still seeking answers to the questions of life, this is an invitation to hear a story that explains the world in a way nothing else will. This story can change your life forever.

My Observation:

 Absolutely amazing. Immediately became a yearly read for me. This book does what college professors spend years trying to teach theology students how to do. It takes the highest thoughts on the biggest questions and places them on the bottom shelf so everyone can understand them. I would recommend this book for any Christian who wants a greater understanding of the big picture of God, life, evil, justice, mercy, and where we fit in all of those area.
