"What is the Bible? Not, as I once thought, a black book full of small print and obscure religious language. It is a whole collection of books which tell how God has made himself known to the human race and what is involved in responding to his love." In this text, the author presents the "big picture" of how God's book fits together. With comment on 130 selected passages, it shows how the story of salvation unfolds from the beginnings of the Old Testament through to Revelation. Prayers and points for further thought offer ways of applying the lessons learned to daily Christian living.
