Here is the review excerpt and the link if you wanna check it out yourself:

“Come along for a journey full of wonder, tears, joy, despair and hope revealed through the eyes
and heart of a storyteller.”

-Publishers Weekly, starred review

Story: Recapture the Mystery
Steven James. Revell, $14.99 paper (208p) ISBN 0-8007-3113-1
As appeared in the Oct. 19, 2005 Publishers Weekly Religion BookLine
Review to appear in Nov. 14 issue of Publishers Weekly

Nationally recognized storyteller James peels away the veneer of utilitarianism and law often associated with the Christian Bible to uncover the poetry and powerful imagery of its story. Using evocative language and his own poems, James retells the story of the Bible beginning with Adam and Eve and ending with the resurrection of Jesus celebrated on Easter. Don't expect a textbook study of the Christian world view; instead, come along for a journey full of wonder, tears, joy, despair and hope revealed through the eyes and heart of a storyteller. Those seeking a new vision of the Easter story will find it here. “Easter has lots of lilies and spring hats and piles of fake, green, curly plastic grass stuff, but none of that has anything to do with the raw reality of a bloody cross and the final hope of the empty tomb,” writes James.
