“Long Story Short caught me off-guard. It was a pleasant and engaging experience. Very different to religious school I went to as a kid.” Kurt—Whakatane, NZ

The Bible’s a big book and, let’s be honest, it’s pretty hard to get your head around it all. Long Story Short simply strips the story back to its core and then presents the story in a way that is accessible to everyone. It’s all about discovering the heartbeat of the Bible, in as short as seven weeks, without all the tradition and protocol of Western religion.

The story starts at the beginning, taking us back to the moment it all began… and then follows the main storyline which eventually brings us to Jesus, explaining who he is and why he came into the world.

It’s that simple! Simple—but not superficial. And, during this journey, some of life’s big questions are addressed: What about the Bible? Who is God? Who am I? What’s gone wrong with the world? What about all the different religions? Who is Jesus and why is he important? What about faith?
