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.
