NKJV Greatest Stories of the Bible.
I'll be honest I'm not a Big NKJV fan. Never really was. I was given this book from Thomas Nelson to review and was like why would I want that?
The more I read the more intrigued I was though. You see this isn't a Bible. They even say that "This is not a Bible." on their first page. I appreciate that. What it is really is a collection of stories that are cherished and can be told time and time again about God's story interacting with His people.
These stories can be told time and time again to small groups, children etc. It is done in such a way it wants people to actually read the Word to see what the Word says about God.
In some ways I can almost see this as a Narrator telling the story and people acting it out in front of the whole congregation on a Sunday morning. (It might take some prep but the script seems to be set) A good example is seen through the chapter on Moses and the Burning Bush on page 80. A dialogue of God and Moses, with a Narrator to do the commentation.
The NKJV Greatest Stories of the Bible is a good resource to help those who need a Simple way to be reminded of how Great our God is in interacting with His people. might pick up your copy today.
