I’m pretty sure I posted here before about the class I took at the ACFW Conference in August.
Well today I started and finished reading the book, The Story of With, written by the presenter of that class, Allen Arnold.
“Unique and powerful, The Story of With will take readers deep into the discovery of their own identity. Bravo! This fascinating blend of storytelling and teaching will shift the thinking of all who take this journey.”
New York Times Bestselling Author, TED DEKKER
“Through allegory and invitation, Allen Arnold ushers us into a journey of imagination, insight, wonder, and wisdom…Read The Story of With!”
New York Times Bestselling Co-Author of Captivating, STASI ELDREDGE
“This is your invitation into deeper identity, intimacy, and imagination with God. Like finding the place you’ve always longed to be. The moment you finish this book, you’ll race to grab one for a friend. Highest Recommendation!”
Bestselling Author of The Long Journey to Jake Palmer, JAMES L. RUBART
“Allen has written a roadmap for dreaming with God. The Story of With is a beautiful, revelatory parable, filled with wonder, mystery, and adventure.”
Author of Prone to Love & Untamed, JASON CLARK
– From the Foreword –
“You are not alone. Whether you’re a free spirit, an office exec, a writer, musician, college student, or tired parent—your soul, like mine, knows life is meant to go beyond rat races and rare applause. This book speaks to that belief. And if you’re not careful, you may find tears warming your eyes as you read because finally someone is naming your weariness, your striving, your questions of why you just can’t quite make it, or the emptiness that hit because maybe you did. It is into those places The Story of With reaches—fusing allegory with application—to offer fresh perspective, restored hope, and a rebirth of creativity.”

Review: Ever felt alone as you travel through this world?
Did you know you don’t have to feel that way?
This book delves into the depths of doing life WITH God, but it’s done in such a way that you don’t realize it’s teaching you vital truths. It’s a true mix of fiction and non-fiction. Allen Arnold tells a story while showing the way to live a full and abundant life.
I’m not much of a non-fiction reader, but this book pulled me in and refused to let go. I read it in a matter of hours (I’m a fast reader) as if it were a true work of fiction. The truths he reveals are not fiction.
Kudos to Mr. Arnold for doing life WITH God and sharing it with us.
