In today's world, the basic building blocks of a Christian world view are often missing in people's lives. To help fill in this missing information, The 52 Greatest Stories of the Bible presents a foundational, clear synthesis of the most significant narratives of the Bible along with the implications and applications of these interrelated stories. It presents the big story in such a way that it will: Connect the dots for readers of the Bible, demonstrating how each individual story is really one chapter in the larger story; Show how Jesus is the point of the story, especially his death and resurrection; and Build a biblical world view by showing the reader how the Bible answers the ultimate questions of life.
KEN BOA is engaged in a ministry of relational evangelism and discipleship, teaching, writing and speaking. Dr. Boa's recent publications include Conformed to His Image. He is the contributing editor to The Open Bible and The Leadership Bible, and is the consulting editor of the Zondervan NASB Study Bible.
JOHN TURNER has studied Theology, Psychology and Philosophy, earning an undergraduate degree from Pacific Christian College and a Th.M. from Bear Valley Bible Institute. Having served churches in California, Maryland and Texas, Mr. Turner is now the President of Faith 2.0 Ministries.
A generation ago, public discourse was littered with biblical references. Someone who endured painful circumstances without giving in to resignation and despair was said to have the patience of Job. Great stories like David and Goliath, Daniel in the lions den, and Balaams talking donkey were mentioned in stories and songs---both religious and popular. Everyone was at least somewhat familiar with them. But that isnt the case anymore. Even within the church, our knowledge and basic understanding of the biblical narrative---and, consequently, the foundational tenets of our faith---is steadily eroding.
For authors Ken Boa and John Alan Turner, the solution to this problem is not the creation of another commentary set or scholarly work. Instead, they have collaborated to create The 52 Greatest Stories of the Bible, a one-year devotional book that is practical, easy to understand, and tackles the pressing questions of origin, destiny, and morality. The book is designed both for church outsiders and Christians seeking a clearer and more confident understanding of their faith so they can communicate it to others.
The greatest call of the Christian life is to know God and to help others to know Him, too. But where do you begin the task of communicating the gospel to a group of people who do not know the basics? How do you approach people who arent even sure who God is, what sin is, who Christ is, or what a Bible is for? Turner asks. Even more, how do you do these things when youre not sure of their meaning yourself? Heres how. You learn and tell the Big Story. You go all the way back to the beginning. Step by step through the Old Testament, you build your worldview in order to prepare yourself for the greatest story, the story of Jesus. Unfortunately, few Christians today know how to do such a thing. Thats why this book is so important.
The 52 Greatest Stories of the Bible marks the third collaborative effort for friends Boa and Turner. Boa is one of the most respected thinkers in Christendom and holds two doctoral degrees, a Ph.D. from New York University and a D.Phil. from the University of Oxford in England. Turner is a teaching pastor par excellence who communicates important biblical concepts in language that anyone can understand. Over the course of a year, the authors will guide readers through one story each week according to a deliberate pattern:
