An understanding of Bible story is essential to so much of our culture, literature, history, language...Bible references are woven into the fabric of our national, artistic and literary heritage. The tabloids talk of a 'David and Goliath encounter' on the football pitch, a 'Damascus Road experience', a 'lions' den' situation or an 'exodus' of skilled workers. People talk of the need for 'the wisdom of Solomon' or their longing for 'the return of the prodigal'. But increasing Bible illiteracy means we are losing real understanding of such terms. The Must Kw Stories are a way of restoring understanding of the importance of 10 key stories in the Bible - 10 stories that have been voted on as essential to our culture and which teachers and parents feel must t be lost to the next generation.
