Discover The Big Picture Of God’s Story From Genesis To Revelation
The Bible is the inspired Word of God, and over the centuries it has changed people’s lives and led them to God. Yet sometimes it can be a difficult book to understand. The culture in which the Bible was written is so different from our own that at times we struggle to understand what it means or how it is relevant to our modern lives.
In A Brief Survey of the Bible
, John Walton, professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College, and Mark Strauss, professor of New Testament at Bethel Seminary in San Diego, address this problem by giving you the background and context you need to successfully understand even the difficult parts of the Word of God. They provide you with an overview of the key themes of the major books in the Bible, show what the stories and teachings meant to the people at the time, and explain how the inspired words of the biblical authors apply to your own situation today. By the end of this fourteen week study, you will walk away with a greater understanding of the Bible, how all the books work together, and what your heavenly Father has done to make a way for you to come to him.
This series features:
- An introduction to the course
- Nine sessions of teaching on the Old Testament from John Walton
- Four sessions of teaching on the New Testament from Mark Strauss
Perfect for personal or a small group study, the A Brief Survey of the Bible Participant’s Guide
provides discussion questions and notes to help you get the most out of every session. It includes an overview of each book of the Bible and a daily reading plan. The between-session Scripture passages, reading tips, and key stories will help you dig into the teaching, with additional facts to help you understand the situations behind every story.
