Book Review: The Whole Bible Story

I am always interested in new ways to bring the Bible into our life.  We have done quite a few things as a family.  Reading through a pretty detailed story Bible in a school year, reading through a one-year chronological Bible for kids, reading through  a regular Bible in a year, doing the entire Bible in 90 days...

So I requested to review The Whole Bible Story by Dr. William H. Marty with the hope that I could use it as another way of going through the Bible with at least my older kids.

I like the idea -- A Bible Story for Grown-Ups.

The publisher's description says that it focuses on the plot and the characters.  I like that concept, but somehow this still wasn't quite what I was looking for.  I do like that it is in "plain English" and I love that it is chronological. 

I think this book could be great for someone who has never read through the Bible.  And I've included an excerpt below, so you can see for yourself if it would be right for you.
