Reading The Story, Living The Story

Below is a link to an article reporting some research into the effects of stories on us.

Reading The Story and engaging with the characters in the narrative will help us to live The Story. The ethical effects of this would be particularly powerful if we keep reading the stories of Jesus and become more Christlike.
