Carlos Darby introduces his new book The One as a new experience that merges storytelling with new formats to tell the story of Jesus to a new generation. “The One uses The Voice Bible translation alongside powerful, full-color images to maximize the long-term impact for the reader, creating a dynamic way to engage with and experience the scriptures.” If you know me at all, you’ll know that I found that description simultaneously very intriguing but also very terrifying. After all, there are more ways to screw up the story of the gospel with a ‘new format’ than there are to improve it. While I’m all for innovative storytelling methods, I almost always come to the conclusion that such a story is not worth tampering with. But surprisingly, I found The One to be a whole lot better than I expected.
