From the Publisher:

The Winner of the 1997 Christianity Today Book Award--Now in Softcover Since its release in February 1996, The Book of God has sold over 165,000 copies and appeared consistently on the Publishers Weekly and ECPA best-seller lists. It was selected for the 1997 Christianity Today Book Award and is a Gold Medallion finalist. It has garnered the praises of Christian and secular critics alike. Truly, it is an amazing book. But then, as those familiar with Walter Wangerin Jr. know, amazing is what you'd expect when this master storyteller brings his gift to bear on the Story of all stories--the Bible. The result is more than magnificent--it's momentous. Here is the entire, grand story of the Bible, retold with exciting detail and passionate energy, and peopled with characters that live, breathe, and feel. . . .

The valley beneath her feet was lovely, patchy green and yellow, divided into the plots of the farmers, the wheat and barley just springing up.

Oh, she felt so sad. Yes, and at the same time happy. Excited. Not content, really. Scared.

Mary bowed her head, buried her face in her arms, and wept.

Suddenly a hand seized her shoulder in a very strong grip. In the same instant thunder crashed at her ear. She jumped and would have tumbled from the cliff, but for the hand that held her.

The thunder said, Hail!

Mary opened her eyes, terrified. There was no one there. No one there, no person, no hand at all--but a dazzling pillar of light, its base upon the rocky hill, its pinnacle endless in the heavens.

The light said, Hail, O favored one, the Lord is with you. Mary before the angel Gabriel . . . Jesus laughing with a Samaritan woman . . . Wangerin portrays human faces and emotions, real places and events, to help the reader feel what it was like for each person to be caught up in the events of a particular time and place. >From Abraham wandering in the desert to Jesus teaching the multitudes on a Judean hillside, The Book of God follows the biblical story in chronological order. Priests and kings, apostles and prophets, common folk and charismatic leaders--individual stories offer glimpses into an unfolding revelation that reaches across the centuries to touch us today.

Book Description ZONDERVAN, United States, 1998. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Walter Wangerin, Jr. loves to tell a good story. In his latest book, The Book of God: The Bible as a Novel, he tells the greatest story ever told. The Book of God is a compelling narrative that tells a collection of Bible stories like a modern bestseller. But it is gripping because it is not fiction, but ages old truth. Ably using fiction techniques of characterization, Wangerin gives readers a new look at Peter and John through the eyes of Jesus. Many of the chapters focus on biblical characters from the famous, like some of the disciples, to the obscure, such as Ehud and Ahikam. Throughout the book, Wangerin is sensitive to the roll of women in the Bible, even devoting separate chapters to Rebekah and Deborah. The Book of God will not replace the Bible itself -- it encourages readers to look at the Bible in a fresh and lively new light. Using what might be called literary homiletics, Wangerin organizes his book into eight parts. Beginning with quot; The Ancestorsquot; and concluding with quot; The Messiah, quot; Wangerin tells God s own story with excitement and reverence. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780310220213
