Product Description

How do I get more out of my Bible reading?

What was going on during the gap between the Old and New Testaments?

How do all the books of the Bible fit together as a whole?

Understanding the Big Picture of the Bible answers these questions and puts clear, readable Bible study aids at your fingertips. It contains thirteen essays from some of today's best evangelical scholars including C. John Collins, Thomas Schreiner, Gordon Wenham, and Darrell Bock, and will help you to:

  • See the big-picture storyline of the Bible
  • Understand the theology of the Old and New Testaments
  • Read the different sections of Scripture effectively
  • Know what happened between the testaments
In addition to essays on each genre of the Bible, the book addresses the general Greco-Roman world and specific Jewish groups at the time of the New Testament. To aid in putting Bible passages in context, it also includes timelines of the Old and New Testaments and intertestamental events.

Useful as both a general overview of the Bible and as a tool for more specific reference and training, this book will help you grow in your understanding of Scripture and your ability to apply the Bible to life.
