The Story (Teen Curriculum)

Using the clear text of the New International Version, this rendering of the Bible allows its stories, poems, and teachings to come together in a single, compelling experience. The Story, Teen Edition sweeps you into the unfolding progression of Bible characters and events from Genesis to Revelation. And, like any good story, it is filled with intrigue, drama, conflict, romance, and redemption. This video series, a companion to The Story, Teen Edition print book, helps teens understand The Story more clearly through experiential learning. Michael Novelli has seen that when teens experience a story, as opposed to it being told or shown to them, they absorb and remember it more thoroughly. This series offers youth workers a new way to engage teens in the grand narrative of the Bible.
