Publisher's Summary

Biblical Christianity is more than just another private religious view. It's more than just a personal relationship with God or a source of moral teaching.

Christianity is a picture of reality.

It explains why the world is the way it is. When the pieces of this puzzle are properly assembled, we see the big picture clearly. Christianity is a true story of how the world began, why the world is the way it is, what role humans play in the drama, and how all the plotlines of the story are resolved in the end.

In The Story of Reality, best-selling author and host of Stand to Reason Gregory Koukl explains the five words that form the narrative backbone of the Christian story. He identifies the most important things that happen in the story in the order they take place:

  • God
  • Man
  • Jesus
  • Cross
  • Resurrection

Our story begins with God. He created everything, but something went terribly wrong. So God initiated a rescue plan and entered the world that he had made by becoming like us in Jesus Christ. Jesus saved us from the wrongness in ourselves and in the world through his death on a cross. And how people respond to what he did will determine their future, at the final event of history: the resurrection.

If you are already a Christian, this is your story. Do you know it? If you are not a Christian, this is still your story, because it explains the world in a way that nothing else will. It is a true story - the real story behind every other story we hear.

    "Great Book, Bad Editing"
    If you could sum up The Story of Reality in three words, what would they be?

    Very Important Message


    What three words best describe Gregory Koukl’s performance?

    Very good reading but whoever edited it made lots of errors.


    Any additional comments?

    In all the audiobooks I have listened to I have never heard so many editing errors. You can tell on multiple occasions where the reader started over because he made a mistake and the person editing it didn't get it pasted back together right.

    Story
    "Every Christian should have this in their Library."

    This was a fantastic book and Greg did a great job of reading it. I think every Christian should have a couple of these books on hand, because it would be a great book to give away to someone that you are sharing the gospel with. I appreciate the fact that this book will be accessible to intellectuals and the laymen alike. it's an awesome book.... Read it or listen to it.

    "Concrete Clear and Concise"

    Fantastic book, concrete clear and concise explanation​ of the Christian Worldview. I would recommend this to all who claim to be a follower of Christ and to the skeptic although it does not go deep into the evidence, it gives good reasons to believe.

    "Tackles the Question of What's Life All About "

    This is a thoughtful look at various world views with a strong argument for why Christianity may best explain the world as it is, and what we should be doing about it.

    "deeper understanding "

    This book is very well written. Gregory Koukl has carefully crafted a brilliant piece of literary architecture which points to valid reasons for belief we all have access to. I am recommending this book to go all people who have questions or complaints about religious systems that need to be addressed.

    Story
    "Thoughtful explanation of the world and what went wrong and God's redemption "

    Greg Koukl is a brilliant apologist who makes his points in an interesting non-fuddy-duddy kind of way! Sometimes when sharing your faith with someone, it becomes clear that questions that are asked of you require a bit more depth than just a personal testimony. Understanding the reality of our world and God's ever present role in the unfolding of history, brings a richness to our Gospel presentation as well as (and maybe more so) to our own personal lives. The Story of Reality is thought provoking, moving, and a must for anyone interested in more than a go-to-church-once-a-week kind of existence.
