Simple Stories ready for press
Clear and Simple Media is pleased to announce the printing of the pre-press proofs for the new book Simple Stories. The book is a print version of the stories that appear on the Hear A Story (www.hearastory.org). The book also includes a helpful introduction and three appendices have been added as well. Each appended chapter is a users guide to help those who wish to use the book with individuals, groups, or those who may use the book as a teaching supplement for students learning English.
Like most of the CSM publications, all 32 stories are written in a simple, global English style. This
particular book uses a vocabulary of under 1200 English words. It serves as a simple introduction to the Bible story. It will be available in both print and electronic versions sometime this fall.
Here is an excerpt from the introduction:
Of all of the stories ever told, the story that the Bible tells is the most important one of all. The story begins long before there was anything else. It tells how God made everything. It tells how He made the first man and woman. It tells how that first man and woman chose not to listen to God and the world was broken. Then it tells of all that God did to fix that broken world and the broken people in it. The story ends with a new beginning—a new heaven and a new earth.
