    Book details

A STORY OF GOD AND ALL OF US is a sweeping narrative that dramatises some of the most important events and characters in the Bible. Developed alongside the epic TV mini-series THE BIBLE, the book reads like a fine novel, dramatising the sweep of biblical events, making the men and women of scripture come alive in vivid detail and dialogue. All are historically and theologically accurate.

The script for THE BIBLE TV series has been reviewed by a number of Christian church leaders and theologians for authenticity. All the key biblical characters are portrayed in the story: Moses, David, Daniel, John the Baptist and of course, Jesus. The book will also highlight the prophetic significance of the empires that controlled Israel down the centuries - Egyptians, Babylonians, Persians and Romans - as well as the many Old Testament prophecies of the Messiah.

...a sweeping narrative that breathes new life into some of the most important events and characters of the Bible...It's gripping stuff, written in short, sharp sentences, making it easy to scan through and get the story.

    This book is groundbreaking in its lively novelization of original film scripts (from The Bible mini-series) that have been based on the Bible with such great skill.The book is also read on CDs by Keith David who has a wonderful range to his voice.The first time I read the book I also listened to the CDs for chapters 1-3 - looking at the stories of Abraham, Moses, Joshua & Samson which was a great way to get a feel for the book. There is also a short Author's Note read by Mark Burnett and a perfect, poetic Prologue read by Roma Downey telling the tale of Noah which is an absolute joy to listen to.I read chapters 4-10 without the CDs as I was in a hurry to finish but I will enjoy listening to all the CDs at a later date.Chapter 4 tells the story of David, chapter 5 the story of Daniel and chapters 6-10 the story of Jesus up to his final appearance to the Apostle John on the island of Patmos.The book is a great read and the familiarity and excitement of the story increases towards the second half and thereafter.There are some lovely touches in the telling of the Nativity, the calling of Peter, the account of Jesus meeting the woman taken in adultery and her accusers, Paul explaining himself to his fellow Christians and the story of Jesus and Nicodemus. In that last story we are told, "The wind blows where it wishes" highlighting the action of both the wind and The Holy Spirit.This book, 'A Story of God and all of us' and the other books accompanying The Bible mini-series are in my opinion very much inspired and will bring about change in our views of the stories of the Bible so that we see them once more as truly dynamic and capable of inspiring change in us.
