Stories are an important part of religion. Our beliefs are based around stories like the bible. Without stories we wouldn't know what happened many years ago we wouldn't have Stories to listen to as were sleeping we wouldn't have Imagination. Stories are a major part of religion because they show and tell us about how religion and the world was created many years ago.
The Torah is like the bible but it only has the first 5 books
Christians have the bible which they read it holds many different books and stories within it
