The Unfolding Story is a comprehensive parish resource for reflective worship on the Old Testament. It is designed for use in public worship or for quiet days, with the 80 meditations woven into themed ready-to-use orders of service.
For many the Old Testament is a closed book - primitive and dull, often barbaric, irrelevant. To reconcile the God we find there with the God revealed in Jesus is sometimes hard.
But it is also the story of a people's journey across centuries towards an ever-deepening understanding of God's greatness, love and mercy, all brought together in anticipation of the promised Messiah - a journey shared and continued by every Christian.
The meditations which form the basis of the services in The Unfolding Story were previously published in Grappling with God . Nick Fawcett has now developed them into complete services with
•an Introduction • Prayers • Hymn suggestions • Commentries • Readings
Nothing more to do, except pray them!
