Join Leon Monroe, Tony Rogers, Joe Johnson, and Victor Dean as they lead a study on the book, The Magnificent Story: Uncovering a Gospel of Beauty, Goodness, and Truth.
We are story-making people. We love reading stories and we love hearing the personal stories of others. We need stories, or narratives, to make sense of our world. And those stories shape our lives. What is the story you have been told about the gospel? About God? About the Christian life? About Jesus? About the cross? About yourself? About heaven?
Your answers to these questions will form a story that will determine how your life will go. The answers reveal your ability to trust, to love, to hope and even your capacity for joy. Any story worth giving the power to shape our lives must pass a simple test: Is it beautiful, good, and true? If it is, then it is a magnificent story and that is where transformation takes place. From James Bryan Smith, author of the bestselling book, The Good and Beautiful God, comes this spiritual formation resource meant to help both individuals and groups understand the magnificent story of Christ in their lives. The field-tested material within includes spiritual practices at the end of each chapter and a group discussion guide. Uncover the true story of beauty, goodness, and truth that will satisfy the ultimate longings of your heart.
