THE STORY OF JESUS, DR. ROBERT MOUNCE
Christianity is first and foremost about Jesus, who he is and what he did. If you are not a follower of Jesus, then we invite you to get to know him. We have put his story at www.TheStoryOfJesus.org. Please go there, read his story, and decide for yourself who you think he is.
52 MAJOR STORIES OF THE BIBLE, DR. BILL MOUNCE
The Bible is one continuous story, from the story of creation to the story of Jesus' future return at the end of time. And yet there are smaller, pivotal stories that make up the basic structure of the one big story. This is a sermon series, and all the extra material like sermon notes and overheads are included so the pastor can preach through the same series.
