About

Rediscover--or discover for the very first time--the incredible story of God's love

The Bible tells a story. It's a beautiful account of God's love for people throughout history. The events of the Bible are exciting, tender, and at times awe-inspiring, but often the story can get lost among the laws, genealogies, poetry, and instructions.

The Whole Bible Story shares the entire grand narrative of the Bible in one easy-to-read, chronological account. All the stories you remember--and many of those you don't--make up the page-turning story of God's pursuit of you. Now fully illustrated with maps and photos to bring the story to life!

"Dr. Marty's comfortable, easy-to-understand style provides a friendly environment for new converts to get a solid overview of the Bible that will encourage them to explore God's Word more deeply. Seasoned Christians will also enjoy the opportunity to feel the rhythm and beauty of a story that never loses its life-changing effect."--Jeff Friend, Worship Leader magazine
