Story Journey offers a series of biblical stories to be learned and explored in a variety of ways.  Each story is printed in episodes to facilitate memorization.  Exegetical comments are offered, with references to good commentaries that explain the meaning of the story in the original context.  Each chapter also includes suggestions about ways to connect the story with contemporary experience and to pray with the story

Boomershine's chapters describe the essence of story as intertwining truth. Boomershine distinguishes learning a story in solitude from learning it with a friend or relating the story to another person altogether. Besides moral instruction, Boomershine examines roles stories have in pastoral care, peacemaking/arbitration scenarios.
