The Real Story
About the book:
Adam and Eve in the Garden, Noah and the Flood, David and Goliath…
We might be familiar with these famous stories of the Bible, but what do they all mean? Where do they fit in the larger picture of God’s plan of salvation for His people?
In The Real Story, Curtis Martin and Edward Sri break open the Word to examine how all these pieces fit together into one cohesive narrative—a story of how, little by little, God has drawn His people into closer union with Himself, culminating in the coming of Jesus Christ and the establishment of His Church. Through a closer study of the key characters and events in the larger biblical narrative, Martin and Sri show that the Bible ultimately isn’t a collection of disjointed stories, but an epic saga of God’s infinite love for us and His perfect plan for our salvation since the beginning of time.
Curtis Martin & Ted Sri on the book:
The Bible can be intimidating. After all, it is no ordinary book; it’s more like a library. It consists of 73 books, written in different languages, by different authors, and to diverse audiences at various periods of time. It also contains many different kinds of writings: law, poetry, letters, history, and prophecy, to name a few. And while some people might be familiar with the major stories of the Bible—Noah and the flood, Moses and the Exodus, David and Goliath, Jesus and the cross—few understand how all these varied stories actually fit together.
