Contributor Two Contributor Two
What started with a series of books — The Story Bible (Zondervan), God’s Story, Your Story by Max Lucado and The Heart of the Story by Randy Frazee — has blossomed into an entire campaign. With the goal of bringing the Bible and its messages to life through the power of narrative, there is now the companion CD Music Inspired by The Story, with performances from Amy Grant, Steven Curtis Chapman, Natalie Grant, Bart Millard of MercyMe, Francesca Battistelli, Mac Powell of Third Day, Natalie Grant, Nichole Nordeman and more. Each song, written in the first-person, recounts the struggles and victories experienced by key people in the Bible.

“It’s all about the humanity,” says Nichole. “These were broken people who were desperate and needed God. They are just like us. Songs from Music Inspired by The Story are much more than just music; they allow the singer and audience to find their stories within these songs and characters, understanding that God still weaves His story of love and redemption with our brokenness, ultimately writing a new story of hope.”
