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.

    I bought this book because it was on sale - figured I had nothing to lose, I am very glad I bought it. The usefulness of the content was unexpected. The pictures, layout and the style make it easy for anyone to use. Haven't gotten through it all yet, but I can say that you don't have to be a bible scholar to use this book. Perfect reference/resource for both individual home use and group bible studies. Another great find at an affordable price from Christianbook.com Thank you.

    Very good book on the subject. A lot is covered and almost anyone can learn things they did not know about the Bible times. Real good deal for the money. Colorful pictures too.

    The book is huge and the price is fantastic but the information in it is priceless. If you want to gain a deeper understanding of the Bible and the times it was written in, this book is a great resource for you.

    The writer brings out details that make it easier for me to study the Bible. I brought 6 of these for Christmas presents. One to my brother and one to our Pastor. He said he would use it. I like it. It was on sale too.
