The greatest storyteller ever lived on this earth was Jesus Christ. He taught great lessons about the kingdom of God through stories. A large crowd always surrounded him, and they loved to hear him. Finally, his story became the greatest story of all times, transforming millions of lives globally.
‘Bible Stories’ are not fiction/ imaginations. They are real time events. When we listen to these events as stories, they are easily understood and retained in our minds. We can teach great values through Stories. A great example is David’s conviction of his sin by the story told by prophet Nathan.
People of all ages like to hear stories. Not only the oral learners, but the literates also love to hear stories. This book is the fruit of a teamwork. Paul says “I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God gave the increase” (1 Corinthians 3:6) Someone got the idea, someone gave technical assistance, some funded , some prayed and finally thousands will be using it.
We hope and pray that Bible Stories, Volume-2 will be a powerful tool in the hands of all, especially the grass root level leaders for the blessing of many.
