"In 28 Stories, Dave takes many of the Bible’s most fascinating characters and retells their real-life adventures in a way that leads readers to ask the most important questions of all: ‘Why does Jesus love me?’; ‘Why should I believe what the Bible says?’; and, of course, ‘What does it all mean to me?’ 28 Stories launches its readers on an exciting journey of exploration through the key teachings of the Scriptures. Most importantly, it does it all in thought-provoking chunks guaranteed to provide fellow explorers – young and old – with a solid grounding in sound biblical teaching.”
