An Epic and True Story
The Bible is the epic story of the unfolding plan of God over the course of the history of the world.
In the introduction to the ESV Story of Redemption Bible, Greg Gilbert writes:
Perhaps the most amazing thing about the Bible’s epic story. . . is that it is history, not fiction. It all actually happened. As inspiring and wonderful as stories can be, this one—with all its twists and turns, ups and downs—is greater than any other because it tells what actually is. God really did create human beings in his image, and they really did rebel against his rule, and then he really did send Jesus to save them from their sin.
