Finding Your Story
…through six great stories of the Bible
•Chapter 1: Esther. Esther is truly one of the great stories of scripture: Funny, dramatic, exciting, full of villains and heroes, with one unique characteristic among all the Bible Stories, God is never mentioned once. Why not?
•Chapter 2: Job/Nicodemus. Job believed he had discovered the formula to life…until it stopped working. Nicodemus thought he had the formula to righteousness…until a late night discussion with Jesus turned his thinking upside down. In these stories we learn why formulas don’t work and why it’s dangerous to rely on them.
•Chapter 3: Elijah’s depression/Hosea’s broken marriage: James calls Elijah a man like us, but rarely does he seem so. Old Testament prophets seem to us like the super heroes of the Bible. What do we learn about God as these two mighty men meet their Kryptonite?
•Chapter 4: Jesus and the Story of the universe: What if the Gospel story is much much bigger than we grasped, and what if we are still an indispensable part of that story? What does that say about us? About God?
•Epilogue: If formulas don’t work, what does? What do the stories tell us about what does work and how to understand our own story?
