In Epic: The Larger Story, John Eldredge suggests that life, for most of us, feels like a movie we've arrived to forty minutes late. Sure, good things happen. But tragic things happen too. What does it mean? We find ourselves in the middle of a story that is sometimes wonderful, sometimes awful, but usually a confusing mixture of both. And, we haven't a clue how to make sense of it all. No wonder we keep losing heart. We need to know the rest of the story. Ours is a great story that began before the dawn of time.
A story of adventure, risk, loss, heroism, and betrayl. A story where good is warring against evil, danger lurks around every corner, and glorious deeds wait to be done. Think of all those stories you've ever loved--there's a reason they stirred your heart. They've been trying to tell you about the true Epic ever since you were young. This is the Gospel like you've never heard it before. There is a Larger Story. And you have an irreplaceable role to play.
