The Story

Randy Frazee recalls as a young boy being drawn to a black leather King James Version of the Bible that sat on his family's bookshelf in the hallway between the bedrooms.  It was a gift from his grandmother.  He would periodically unzip the Bible, lie on the floor, and begin to read with the simple faith that there was something in it that he desperately needed to know.  After 15 minutes or so, he would zip it back up and put it back on the shelf.  He really didn't get the message at the time.  He wanted to, but it wasn't in his reach.

Ever felt like Randy?  You think/hope that the Bible has something within it that you need to know - something that could change your life - but find that it is elusive.  No matter how much you read, do you walk away more confused than when you began?  If yes, then know that you are not alone.

The Bible contains the greatest story ever told, God's story.  What's even more amazing is that your story is a part of God's story!  The pages of the Bible don't contain an ancient irrelevant relic.  They are alive and can affect your life at this very moment!
