There are seven billion people in the world. Seven billion stories. And yet there are themes in our stories that are universal: betrayal,  love,  romance,  redemption,  sacrifice... The question - and it's a really big question - is if there's a larger story or narrative to which all of our stories relate, one that makes sense of our shared experience - a common Back Story. It's a question you need to answer for yourself. Billions have found their back story in this book, the Bible, and yours may be here as well. It's worth reading, reflecting on, and considering how this story intersects with your own.   Among other features these Bibles contain: •  Backstory Gospel presentation •  Informative Guide to the books •  Visual chronology of the biblical drama •  Bible maps •  Introductions to every book of the Bible •  Durable binding   Product Information: Latest edition of the NIV.
