The Most Important Stories of the Bible by Christopher Hudson and Stan Campbell is a wonderful book. In 182 pages it takes the reader through the Bible, highlighting stories in sections titled Beginnings, Patriarchs, Israel’s Family Becomes a Nation, Kings and Prophets, Stories of Jesus, and Stories of the Early Church.
Each chapter begins where the previous chapter left off, giving a brief synopsis before going into The Essential Story for that section of Scripture. Here the authors explain the story in concise, understandable language. The last section of each chapter ends with Essential Truth which is the takeaway from the story.
When I first received this book, I looked up several familiar stories to see how the authors handled them before reading the rest of the book. I came away from each story impressed by the way they were presented.
Is there someone in your life with whom you want to share the essential truth of God’s Word? Someone who maybe isn’t interested in reading the whole Bible? Someone who prefers summaries instead of the entire story? Then The Most Important Stories of the Bible is a book I highly recommend.
Have you read this book? If so, what was your impression of it?
I wish you well.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House for a fair and honest review, which is exactly what I gave.
