Description

Sixty-six books written by 40 people over nearly 2000 years, in two languages and several different genres. A worldwide bestseller published in countless sizes and bindings, translations and languages. It has been sworn by in court, fought over by religious people, quoted in arguments. The Bible is clearly no ordinary book. How can we begin to read and understand it as a whole?

In his excellent overview, Vaughan Roberts gives the big picture - showing how the different parts of the Bible fit together under the theme of the kingdom of God. He gives us both the encouragement and the tools to read it with confidence and understanding. He points us to the Bible's supreme subject, Jesus Christ, and the salvation God offers through him.

“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.
