“Clear & Straightforward”

The author presents the big storyline of the Bible in a very clear and accessible style. It's helpful to call back to mind the big idea of being God's people, in God's place and under God's rule; this book reminds us as where we have come from as the people of God, and gives us hope for the glorious future that awaits us.
