When I watched the first episode of the epic TV miniseries "The Bible," I remember thinking to myself, "This is spectacular, but what if I want to engage with these stories on a deeper level." After watching and re-watching and re-re-watching the entire series, it still felt like something was missing...

Thank God for this book! Finally, all the stories from the Bible have been gathered into a single text! Now I can go right to the source to get the news straight from the horse's (or donkey's) mouth, as it were. If you want to relive the fall of humanity alongside Adam and Eve, the story is here. If you want to be captivated time and time again as Moses turns water into blood, look no further. If you are looking for THE comprehensive account of just what God has been up to these last 5,000+ years, you must buy this book.

And that's not all! Recently, a small group of friends and I have been getting together to study the stories here. What a blessing it's been! We're even thinking about gathering a larger group once each week and having a few gifted leaders teach us important truths based on this wonderful book. Who would have thought that a single text could be so life-encompassing and applicable.

Don't get me wrong, this isn't a perfect resource. I do have a few complaints/suggestions:
- Is there a leather-bound version available? I hope there will be soon.
- I'd like to have even more detail, if possible. Why not add more stories, along with genealogies, poetry and maybe even a few letters?
- What would really be cool is if there was some sort of reference system to allow readers to connect parts of the book to other parts, when appropriate.
Certainly not damning criticism by any means, just some thoughts I had...

I've spent my entire life searching. Searching for something...something real. Meaningful. True. I've held out hope---honest, earnest hope---that one day, I'd find something that would elevate my heart and my mind. Now I have that. I have something to hold on to: The Story of God and All of Us: A Novel Based on the Epic TV Miniseries.

I mean, it should be said that The Bible miniseries nearly pushed me over the precipice of self-actualization; but, putting that in the form of a book, where I can allow my imagination to take the characters and the stories to the next level really helped me discover myself in a way that I never thought possible. That being said, I only gave it four stars because I feel the authors wrote it almost as though I should have some preconceived comprehension of these characters and stories. There were certainly a few gaps. I was confused about the backgrounds of some of the characters. Particularly the Jesus character. I would have liked to know more about his background, i.e., what he was doing with his life before he became a martyr. Basically, I just wish there were more detail. The book probably could have been a lot longer.

Either way, I really hope, no, I NEED the authors to keep going with this. I want a series, like Harry Potter or The Lord of the Rings. I want to know what happens to ghost-Jesus. Does he keep walking the Earth like a slightly less powerful Bruce Banner? Will he travel the ages using his powers for good? Maybe they could do a re-imagining of some of history's most notorious events and Jesus could use his healing powers and his way with people to prevent them. I mean, imagine if Jesus prevented The Plague or World War II. Maybe they could also do a crossover series where Jesus joins the cast of The Walking Dead...like a good zombie, or something.

Anyways, I strongly suggest reading this book. It will absolutely change your life!

For many years, I regret to say, I have challenged the Bible and called myself an "atheist". The Bible, which many touted as the word of God, just didn't make sense to me and so I found myself in many debates and arguments pointing this out. Needless to say, when Mark Burnett's mini series "The Bible" hit screens, I was ready to mock but instead learned how all this time I had just been too thick to understand the Bible. The mini series really trimmed the fat and left me with a neat, concise and plausible version of events.

I felt truly blessed (yes, this mini series finally helped me understand what it feels like to be blessed!) when I learned that Mark Burnett, brains behind Survivor, not only gave us this wonderful program but was smart enough to put it in book form. Sadly, people don't take television as seriously as they should, so to make sure His (Burnett's) message is clear, he has re-imagined it as a book so it's available for easy reference and quoting. I like to keep this book on the coffee table and open it up on a random page to see what part of God's story it will take me to. I also have the Kindle version so I can read it aloud on public buses and also while waiting for buses. I also read to people at supermarket check stands. Once people get over the initial "What on earth are you reading? That's not the Bible!" they are drawn in and receive His (Burnett's) message of our beautiful and storied past and can see how this recently penned message is still relevant many months after it was first written.

I think the creators of the "original" Bible might have jumped the gun getting it out when they did. It clearly needed more thought and revision and a little thing called readability before it was ready for a wide audience.
