Guidelines for how the stories are crafted

  • Each story is accurate to Scripture. Nothing has been added to embellish what is given in the Bible.
  • Each story is basically the simple telling of a Biblical event. Everything has been removed that distracts from the simple understanding of the story.
  • Smaller events in the Bible are grouped together with another event to make a larger combined story.
  • Larger stories are broken into two or three parts.
  • If a story appears more than once, it is compiled together into one story.
  • The Stories in the book are between 3-10 minutes in length (average telling or reading speed). These have been condensed for radio so they can be told in 90 seconds.
  • Nothing in the story is left out because of offensive content. Therefore, we have placed an icon in the book next to stories that might be considered inappropriate for younger children. These stories are included in the year-long series, but alternatives are made available for those who decide not to use them.

Here is the recommended daily broadcast schedule for airing all 260 2-minute stories — with the stories of the birth of Jesus at Christmas time.
