CEB Storyteller's Bible

product image
$39.99
Stories convey truths through plot, character, and point of view. Nowhere is that more true than in the Bible. Jesus and the prophets taught through story, and The CEB Storytellers Bible helps readers see the big themes and important truths of the Bible while also guiding them in how to tell these stories in contemporary language.

The supplementary material in this Bible comes from the acclaimed Storyteller's Companion to the Bible, which Madeleine L'Engle endorsed: "In a day when unquestioning literalism is on the increase, it is a delight to receive a book that takes biblical storytelling seriously and gloriously! The writers and editors are indeed to be commended for their willingness to understand biblical imagination and narrative richness. This book should be a real mindstretcher and encourage many people to return to the Bible with newly opened eyes."

Key Features
- Articles about reading and telling Bible stories.
- Extensive commentary on all the best-known (and many of the less common) stories of the Bible.
- Learn to tell Bible stories to make them come alive for listeners.
- Improve sermons with better storytelling and with better understanding of the Bible's stories.
- Multiple indexes.

CEB Thinline Bible Burgandy Bonded Leather

product image
$29.99

This new thinline edition of the Common English Bible translation is packaged in a rich burgundy bonded leather, with the words Holy Bible stamped in silver, making it a timeless Bible for yourself or to give as a gift.

The Common English Bible is a readable, reliable, and relevant invitation to Scripture.

Readable: It means more than reading phrases on a page. It means truly comprehending the words, the sentences, the ideas, and their meaning. With its approachable language, the CEB sets the reader on a path to new understanding.

Reliable: The CEB was built on the assembled knowledge of a diverse, cross-denominational group of men and women, translating directly from the original ancient texts--not revising tradition or inserting church doctrine. Exhaustive attention has been paid to ensure the work is impeccably balanced and rich in context.

Relevant: The times change, but the Bible meets you where you are, providing guidance for every situation you face and every season of life.
