Editorial Reviews

Review

"Her grasp of the mundane and miraculous and their interplay gives a depth and honesty to her story that tugs at the heart and gives us hope our story can matter. Her book will be a clarion call to bring our broken, holy, troubled, and glorious life to the author of all stories: Jesus." --Dan B. Allender, Author of The Wounded Heart, The Healing Path, and To Be Told: God Invites You to Coauthor Your Future

"Elizabeth draws me to understand God's story, my story, and Scripture like few others." --Shari Thomas, Founding Director, Parakaleo

Elizabeth's Bible study shows how Genesis through Revelation is God's love-story for His people. A story of brokenness, repentance, peace and restoration as He is always calling His people back to Himself: a story of God reconciling us to Him through Jesus Christ. This study gives us opportunities to discuss God's story from scripture and to share our stories as we pray for and encourage one another; it leads us to a deeper love for God and others.

A great deal of the Bible comes to us in the form of stories, and even the parts filled with propositions have their background in the story of God's action in history. I believe this is central to the way we should read and apply scripture, and thus I am delighted to have the opportunity to review the book Learning God's Story of Grace by Elizabeth Reynolds Turnage.

But first, disclosures. Elizabeth took both Greek and Hebrew from me, and the publisher provided me with a free review copy of the book. I want to thank both author and publisher for this opportunity.

Including front and back matter, this book is just 128 pages. It's spiral bound, which is helpful in a book which is likely to be used as a workbook. It is divided into seven lessons plus an epilogue. Each lesson (except for one) is divided into activities for five days. I might have preferred a few more notes on working as a group, which is clearly the place to use this material. Nonetheless, readers should have no problem either leading or participating in a small group using this study.

The approach begins with engaging a passage of scripture (you can find the details on page 14), and ends with living and then praying the story, thus making it part of your life. From my own experience with small groups, this latter part will be the most challenging as people often shy away from directly moving to action and prayer from what they learn in scripture. Combining both living and praying drives the student to truly make the scripture story part of his or her own life.

The first lesson uses Psalm 78. I must admit that using that Psalm gives any work on Bible study bonus points. Following that Elizabeth takes on the creation story, but not in the way you might expect.

I've followed Elizabeth's blog (livingstorygrace.com) for awhile. Before her material was gathered into this book, I gleaned a lot of her basic concepts from her blog and regularly forwarded her rich ideas to friends. I'm thankful I can now point people to her books. This book goes as a deep as you're willing to go so be prepared to do some soul-searching! The concepts of this book are paradigm shifting and long-lasting. In fact, you won't be able to view your life the same! Elizabeth invites us to see our stories in light of the over-arching story of the Bible. And the assurance of God's big story enables me to live my little stories in faith. Not only has God used this book to give me greater insight into my own life story but it has also taught me how to listen, really listen, to other's stories and help them see their stories through a wider lens. I'm looking forward to Elizabeth's next book to see how story affects our faith, hope and love!

This guide does the work of leading us through the discipline of self-discovery, Bible reading and prayer. It helps us to make sense of our "stories." We don't always, nor ever will on this earth, understand the cause or reasons for suffering, but this book helps us to reach for and live the good and grace that is borne of living out our story.
