Life, for most of us, feels like a movie we’ve arrived to forty minutes late.

Sure, good things happen, sometimes beautiful things. But tragic things happen too. What does it mean? We find ourselves in the middle of a story that is sometimes wonderful, sometimes awful, usually a confusing mixture of both, and we haven’t a clue how to make sense of it all. No wonder we keep losing heart.

We need to know the rest of the story.

For when we were born, we were born into the midst of a great story begun before the dawn of time. A story of adventure, of risk and loss, heroism...and betrayal. A story where good is warring against evil, danger lurks around every corner, and glorious deeds wait to be done. Think of all those stories you’ve ever loved—there’s a reason they stirred your heart. They’ve been trying to tell you about the true Epic ever since you were young.

There is a larger story. And you have a crucial role to play.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 3/31/2011

    " A condensed version of all of Eldredge's books. Still good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 12/29/2010

    " I thought it was a good short story/book. Rich had wanted to leave it on the train after he finished reading it, but I convinced him to let me read it first. It's a good book for a new or non-Christian. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joe | 11/29/2010

    " If you can only read one John Eldredge book, read this one. A great book for hearing and seeing God in your particular context. I return to this book often. Canonical. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pete | 10/11/2010

    " So good to have the Story of the Bible so clearly and succinctly explained! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Thomas | 8/19/2010

    " Eldredge suggests that the reason we are inspirired by epic stories such as Star Wars, The Matrix, and Lord of the Rings is because God has a plan for our life to live like a hero for him, or something like that. I was unconvinced. This book was cheesy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janet | 1/23/2010

    " God's story is unfolding all around us and all through time. We are a part of His story.
    I love that!
    I have used this book to teach lessons with kids at church a number of times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 1/4/2010

    " Not brilliant or 100% original, but interesting nonetheless. The longer I have been a Christian, the more I can see that our human desire for story reflects this greater "story behind the story." A good, concise little book, if not amazingly well-written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 11/25/2009

    " This was a gift from my wife on my first fastpacking expedition along the Katy Trail. What a great spiritual experience; to be reading this fireside; after hiking for several hours to the campsite! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aaron | 10/30/2009

    " sat down and read it straight through...it must be pretty good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 7/20/2009

    " I like how the book related scripture with everyday, familiar, things. Even relating it to some of the more memorable movies I have seen. It made me think about how I need to focus on looking at what is there every day and realizing the purpose of it all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debra | 7/4/2009

    " Reading This Book helped me to see the Plan of Salvation in every story. I have come to appreciate that there is no such thing as just a story. If it's worth the time to study it has the pattern. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pam | 3/21/2009

    " Where was this book 20 years ago when I was sitting in the movie trying to figure out who was who and what was what. I hand sell this book alot at my job and wish I could just give everyone in the world a copy...really. "
