Item Description...
Overview
The Bible as a Single, Powerful Story. Here is the entire story of the Bible, narrated by master storyteller Walter Wangerin Jr. Reading like a great historical novel, The Book of God dramatizes the sweep of biblical events, making the men and women of this ancient book come alive in vivid detail and dialogue. From Abraham wandering in the desert to Jesus teaching the multitudes on a Judean hillside, The Book of God follows the biblical story in chronological order. Priests and kings, apostles and prophets, common folk and charismatic leaders--individual stories offer glimpses into an unfolding revelation that reaches across the centuries to touch us today. Wangerin recreates the high drama, low comedy, gentle humor, and awesome holiness of the Bible story. Imaginative yet meticulously researched, The Book of God offers a sweeping history that stretches across thousands of years and hundreds of lives, in cultures foreign and yet familiar in their common humanity. History and fact take on personality and warmth. Wangerin shows you human hands--Abraham raising the knife over his son Isaac on Mount Moriah, a priest offering incense in the temple at Jerusalem, Joseph the carpenter at work with his tools. He shows you human faces--Moses and Aaron face-to-face with the king of Egypt, Mary smiling like a white rose, and Jesus laughing with a Samaritan woman. Gardens, humble homes, olive groves, palaces, temples, and the hills of Judea shining in the afternoon sun--Wangerin makes the places where the events of the Bible took place come to life in the imagination. Wangerin helps you understand what it was like for each person to be caught up in the events of a particular time and place--a time and place where the eternal God somehow reached out and touched ordinary men and women. The book of God is no ordinary book. Written by a born storyteller, it is the magnum opus of one of the most respected and beloved authors of our time.

The book of God  Mar 22, 2007
WHAT A WONDERFUL BOOK! I love history & I love God - what a wonderful combination & what a great way to know the bible. My Mother has read this book three times & I am now reading it with my children at night. I have given this book as gifts & will continue to do so. I highly reccomend this book. So well written - you are there! Thank you. I look forward to reading The Book of Jesus by the same author - Walter Wangerin Jr.
 
Chronology is key  Mar 10, 2007
As a theologian, I always struggle with teaching people about the bible as a story. The Pentateuch alone skips several generations and changes the order of some events.

"The Book of God" is a great way to look at the great story as a novel. When things are not chronologically correct, it is because they're being told as a past story. This book gives a delightfully real retelling of the entire bible in one complete novel, and is highly recommended.
 
The Book Of Good  Jan 5, 2007
For children up to early adolescence an excellent introduction to the Bible. It brings the Bible to life, in a clear an easy way to understand the essence of the word of God.
 
I am no Biblical Scholar...  Dec 21, 2006
But I really enjoyed this book and the way it lays out events in the Bible like a novel. A good portion of the Bible is not in here, but with what is in the book, it is very long, so I can understand why some things had to be left out. This is not a book to replace the Bible, but one to enhance some of the story's in the Bible.
 
The Book of God  Nov 10, 2006
This book was one of the best Christian fictions I have read. Although it is written as fiction, it is essentially Biblically based. What a wonderful way to learn more about God's word.
