What’s the “Long Story?” It’s the Old Testament from Genesis to Malachi. God’s story of the covenant extends over thousands of years and many pages of written script. What makes it “short?” The long story is short when it’s broken up into 10-minute devotional bits. A new book just published by New Growth Press entitled Long » Read More
