A single volume overview of the entire Bible, explaining background, genre, ideas, and core message
This is a single volume overview of the entire Bible, an introductory primer which helpfully and easily presents the reader with the big picture--a summary of the historical background, literary genre, main ideas, and core theological message for each book. Hugh Hill highlights the threads that bind the whole together and shows how every part of the Bible is instructive for us today.
The striking thing about this material is how fresh, pertinent, and applied it is. A fine example of clear writing, it concentrates on what really matters, allowing us to grasp the whole. Originally taught to a congregation Sunday by Sunday, the text constantly brings the reader back to his or her own life. Thoroughly researched and expertly expounded, it will serve to whet the appetite for more in-depth study. It is ideal for new and inexperienced Christians, but more mature believers will be surprised at how many new insights they discover.
