Throughout the book, he points out how Bible History highlights God's Grace and God's Glory. He makes everything personal, asking at the end of chapters how your story fits in with God's Story.
I especially liked his comment about the end of the book of Acts (chapter 28), telling us that we are living out the unwritten chapter of Acts 29.
His last chapter comments on Revelations, saying "we don't yet have the luxury of viewing these prophetic events through the insight of hindsight," also saying: "don't love a prophetic chronology more than you love your coming King!" I appreciated those statements, but then he went on to try and explain Revelations in several just several pages. I thought this was a weakness of the book, although would still recommend it.
I liked his style of writing, it is easy to read. If you are unsure of how everything fits together in the Old Testament leading into the New, this book states it well.
I also appreciated this quote towards the end of the book, "The church itself is not the goal of all things, but the channel through which Christ will bring God's story to a grand culmination. We were never designed to a be cup, but a conduit."
I also like a book with a similar title, Long Story Short: Ten Minute Devotions to Draw Your Family to God by Marty Machowski. It does an excellent job of finding Jesus in the stories of the Old Testament. It is written in a format meant for family devotions, but I enjoyed using it as a personal devotional book. I would also recommend it.
