Product Description

Christians resolved to study the Bible more fervently often struggle to grasp the progression of Scripture as a whole, instead encountering various passages each week through unrelated readings, studies, and sermons. But once they see the Bible as a Great Story, they begin to see how their own lives fit into what God has done and is doing in the world.

New Testament scholar J. Scott Duvall and Old Testament expert J. Daniel Hays authored Living God's Word: Discovering our Place in the Great Story of Scripture to help Christians consider how their lives can be integrated into the story of the Bible, thus enabling them to live faithfully in deep and important ways.

They survey the entire Bible through broad themes that trace the progression of God's redemptive plan. Each section deals with a certain portion of Scripture's story and includes reading/listening preparation, explanation, summary, observations about theological significance, connections to the Great Story, and written assignments for further study. These features---combined with the authors' engaging style---make Experiencing God's Word an ideal introductory college text, Sunday school elective, or small group study.
