How can the sixty-six books of the Bible have a single message for us today? What unites the vastly different accounts of God's work in the world? How do the various genres of the Bible work together? Vaughan Roberts believes that the Bible tells a single story for all time. He draws out the Bible's message of Jesus Christ and God's redemption through him in six big questions:
Who rules the world?
What does it mean to be human?
How should we view money?
Is a perfect relationship possible?
How does the Holy Spirit work in the world and in our lives?
What is God's plan for the world?
This companion volume to Roberts's previous book, God's Big Picture, will not only help you answer these questions, but also give you tools to transform your own Bible study in light of the whole story of God.
