What I most appreciated about this book is the insight Stanley gives to the Old Testament. As Stanley takes the reader on a journey from character to character he tells the story of God's pursuit of relationship in a fresh and clear way. Not only does Stanley give new insight into the lineage of Jesus, he gives historical perspective that allows the reader to understand the Israelites in a new way.
My understanding of how amazing God's grace is has been deepened, and I have also gained a new perspective on how the Bible is a group of stories that actually tell one larger story.
I think this book would be amazing for a new believer or someone who has grown up in the church. I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
