The Story is an awesome and easy way to learn the Bible and feel more comfortable actually reading from the Bible.

I have been leading a small group with 14 participants for three weeks on The Story. I purchased only one Participant Guide initially, based on the single review I had read. Before the first session, I photocopied the first lesson in the guide (don't condemn me yet) and distributed it to each participant. After the session was completed, I circulated my copy of the Guide within the group for the purpose of asking participants whether or not they might want to purchase their own copy. We had some discussion about this, and all (yes, all) felt that the opportunity to contemplate the questions (perhaps several times during the week) after doing the weekly readings in The Story NIV text would enhance the discussion at our sessions. Consequently, I ordered 13 more copies. After a couple more weekly group sessions, it is apparent to me that the discussions have become more lively and penetrating. I think this approach has benefited my group. Granted that all groups are dynamically different, and that this approach may likewise not be suitable in all situations, my suggestion is to review the material and think this through carefully before you purchase multiple copies of this Guide. In my case, after 3 weeks, I think this is an excellent small group program, and the materials are very well done. 31 weeks is a long time, but if the first 3 lessons is a good indicator for my group, the time will go by quickly. The DVD is also very well done, and Randy Frazee is a superb storyteller and facilitator. There are more materials available for this program which I am not using and therefore cannot comment on, but I highly recommend the three main sources: The NIV Text, the Participant Guide, and the DVD.

This "The Story" is wonderful. I am a member at Shoreline Church, home of The Harney's and we have adopted this teaching for our entire congregation. I for one have never read the bible all the way through.... I usually just read through whatever is brought up during services. I really like the participants guide as it really makes you think and it also helps bring things into perspective for TODAY and our own personal lives. I hope you all give it a go, you will not regret it. Thank you and God Bless.

The book and the DVD really give a good overview of the bible and how God has worked throughout history to bring humanity back into a loving relationship with Himself. A bit too light for the mature Christian who is very skilled in the bible, but it's a nice refresher for us all. Definitely a must have for the new Christian who seeks to understand God and His Word better. I didn't care much for the participant guide, though which is why I gave this only 3 stars. Found the questions a bit boring, but I guess it is good for a group setting and helps to foster conversation. We did this study at home, so I don't know if I would recommend the guide for self-study purposes. All in all the book and DVD are really good.

The Story is an excellent book that gives a big picture view of the Bible. It is basically the Bible written in a novel format. Our church is studying The Story and our family has been reading it and watching the DVD series. This has completely enhanced our understanding of the Bible and our walk with the Lord. They have a teen series and a children's series as well. I recommend this to everyone!

Much of the content references a DVD which was not included with the guide I purchased. Whatever I read in deciding to purchase this guide did not state that the DVD was required although without the DVD, the content value is significantly diminished.

We are going through this series at our church, and we have all the books that go with this series. We have been going through it for over 2 months, and it is really giving my family and I a better understanding of the Bible. The benefit to this series is that is goes through the bible in a story form. There are so many extras that are available on top of this guide, and I'd advise anyone to get this series. My 5 year old is going through The Story with his own children's book, and he's been able to learn and retain so much in the last couple of months.

My church (about 30 adults) started this program about 5 weeks ago. So far all the teachers think it is going very well. The "helps" are great and the young children are very involved. The concept of having all the different age groups hearing/studying the same materiel sure seems to be working. The Story, NIV: The Bible as One Continuing Story of God and His People
