The First Nations Version (FNV) recounts the Creator's Story—the Christian Scriptures—following the tradition of Native storytellers' oral cultures.

Chandra Crane has keenly felt the otherness of having a mixed multiethnic and multicultural background. But those of us with a mixed heritage have the privilege and potential to serve the Lord through our unique experiences. Crane explores what Scripture and history teach us about ethnicity and how we can bring all of ourselves to our sense of identity and calling.
Modern life tells us that it's up to us to forge our own identities and to make our lives significant.

Contrasting these two visions of life, Alan Noble invites us into a better understanding of who we are and to whom we belong.
