Each person’s life tells a story. These stories have happy chapters, sad chapters, boring chapters, and exciting chapters. Some people seem to author their own stories, while others have the pens snatched from their hands. Some stories feel hopeless. Can our stories ever be rewritten? Will they have a happy ending? 

David Murray introduces readers to the StoryChanger, Jesus Christ—the only one who can rewrite human stories with his better Story. Both Christians and non-Christians will discover how God's Story can transform their own messy stories into stories worth telling.

Endorsements

“Is it up to me to craft my life story? Is there a greater power that has determined my story that leaves me with no control over it? Is it possible that the story of my life could take a dramatic turn in another direction? These are the kinds of questions David Murray addresses in this inviting book, which serves as an invitation to discover all that we were created to be in the context of a far greater story.”
Nancy Guthrie, author, Even Better than Eden

The StoryChanger is a book about three characters and their stories. The first is a Scotsman named David Murray. I have known him for years, but until reading these pages I had no idea how his story was changed. The second character is anyone who picks up this book, reads it, and discovers how helpful it is to understand the story of their life written thus far. And the third character? Well, he’s the StoryChanger—who is pretty aptly named. But I should leave it to David Murray to introduce you to him.”
Sinclair B. Ferguson, Chancellor’s Professor of Systematic Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary; Teaching Fellow, Ligonier Ministries

“Are you trying to make sense of your life or the lives around you? Are you looking for purpose? What matters? What matters the most? David Murray’s The StoryChanger will give you answers and might even change your story. He writes as a man who understands people, but even more importantly, who understands God. Prepare to be encouraged and to see your life as part of a much grander and more important story than you can imagine.”
Jason Helopoulos, Senior Pastor, University Reformed Church; author, The Promise: The Amazing Story of Our Long-Awaited Savior

“David Murray has given us a practical, accessible, and personal guide to show us how the Bible’s big story transforms the stories of our lives. Jesus alone can change our stories—moving us from sadness to satisfaction, from loneliness to belonging, and from despair to hope. What a relief to know that we’re part of a bigger story and that there’s hope for us even after we’ve made a mess of life. I’m eager to see how this book will transform many people by introducing them to the divine author and StoryChanger we all need."
Drew Hunter, Teaching Pastor, Zionsville Fellowship, Zionsville, Indiana; author, Made for Friendship

“Can the story of my life be rewritten? If you or a friend is feeling trapped in a story that seems messy and meaningless, let David Murray introduce you to the StoryChanger who is rewriting the story of David’s life and can do the same for you.”
David Sunday, President, WordPartners; Teaching Pastor, New Covenant Bible Church, Saint Charles, Illinois
