Product Description

Michael A. Harbin has written a book to fill the need for a single text that gives overviews of both Old and New Testaments in a unifying manner. This book shows how the entire Bible fits into a historical continuum. It traces the writing of the Bible as part of the history of the Israelite people and the nation of Israel, showing how the New Testament naturally flows out of the Old Testament, not only theologically, but historically. As such, it follows an historical order rather, than a strict canonical one.

Demonstrating the historical unity between the two testaments, the book traces God's working in history to provide salvation. It begins with God's creation of the cosmos and the initial problem of the fall of man. It then traces God's solution to that problem as he selects first a man, Abraham, his line, and then the nation of Israel to provide the Messiah. Finally, it focuses on identifying the Messiah in the person of Jesus Christ and how the message of the gospel was promulgated to the world.

Publisher's Description

The Bible is a collection of writings that together tell a unified story. But exactly how do all the pieces fit together? In a single volume, The Promise and the Blessing connects the dots of the Old and New Testament books to reveal the big picture of salvation history. Organized chronologically rather than canonically, this book traces the flow of Israel’s history and shows how the New Testament proceeds out of the Old. It begins with God’s creation of the cosmos and the initial problem of the fall of man. Then it traces God’s solutions to that problem as he selects first one man, Abraham, then his line, and then the nation of Israel to provide the Messiah. Finally, it focuses on the Messiah himself and looks at how the gospel of Jesus was spread throughout the known world. The Promise and the Blessing is easy to use and ideal for anyone who wants to understand the grand narrative of the Bible. It features numerous beautiful, full-color photos, as well as sidebars and brief, fascinating “breakouts” of supplementary information. Maps, illustrations, summaries, and insightful notes help to illuminate the text. Field-tested in the classroom, The Promise and the Blessing is designed for Old and New Testament survey classes and will provide all readers of the Bible with a better understanding of how the drama that began in Eden winds through Israel’s history to its fulfillment in Jesus Christ.
