The Bible is a collection of 66 books written by 40 different authors over the course of about 1400 years. It was written by fishermen, tax collectors, shepherds, kings, doctors, political prisoners and political advisers, farmers, and poets. Genesis through Deuteronomy was probably written in the wilderness; Jeremiah wrote from a dungeon. Paul wrote his letters from prison; Luke wrote Acts while traveling through Asia Minor and Europe; John recorded Revelation while exiled on an island. Different portions were written in Africa, Asia, and Europe. It is not organized in chronological order but by categories or genres of writing, such as law, history, poetry, prophecy, and letters. Amazingly, one seamless story emerges—the story of a passionate God on relentless pursuit of those He loves.  Join us to experience the entire Bible in 13 weeks. 

Our kids are walking through the entire Bible, too! Every week, kids will memorize part of a poem. By the end of the series, they'll be able to tell the whole story of the Bible! Kids will receive a poster, flash cards, and a special kids book to help them memorize the poem. Kids, here's a video you can watch to help you memorize the poem!

Long Story Short is best experienced in community.
