Adult small-group participant's guide. Amazon says, "To understand the Bible, says author and pastor Randy Frazee, you need bifocal lenses, because two perspectives are involved. The Lower Story, our story, is actually many stories of men and women interacting with God in the daily course of life. The Upper Story is God’s story, the tale of his great, overarching purpose that fits all the individual stories together like panels in one unified mural. In 31 video sessions, The Story video curriculum will open your eyes to God’s master-plan unfolding in the lives of the Bible’s characters-and in your own life. Discover the heart of God’s Upper Story, and the joy that comes as you align your story with God’s. The Story DVD and Participant’s Guide (sold separately) are designed for use by groups of all sizes, including small groups and Sunday school and adult education classes, for each of the 31 weeks of The Story church-wide journey."
