Many of us have read the Bible as if it was merely a mosaic of little bits – theological bits, moral bits, historical-critical bits, sermon bits, devotional bits, narrative bits. But to read the Bible in such a fragmented way is to ignore its divine author’s intention to shape our lives through its story.
This book takes readers through the big story of Scripture in six acts:
Act 1: God establishes his kingdom – Creation
Act 2: Rebellion in the kingdom – Fall
Act 3: The King chooses Israel – Redemption initiated
Act 4: The Coming of the King – Redemption accomplished
Act 5: Spreading the news of the King – The mission of the Church
Act 6: The Return of the King – Redemption completed
The book provides an introduction to the Bible and a commentary on important passages, while helping the reader relate their story to the Bible story at each point.
