Suggestion from the Pastor

The Drama of Scripture: Finding Our Place in the Biblical Story

By: Craig G. Batholomew & Michael W. Goheen

Pastor’s Description

Often people read the Bible as a group of disconnected stories, having no major focus other than to provide a moral compass for daily living.  In The Drama of Scripture, the authors turn from this approach and direct the reader’s attention to the great drama of redemptive history that unfolds from Genesis to Revelation.

In keeping with the tradition of theologians like Geerhardus Vos and Herman Ridderbos, Bartholomew and Goheen trace the progress of the kingdom of God throughout the Bible in an easy to read style that informs as well as challenges.

Although this is a theology book, it is not cumbersome or incomprehensible. Therefore, I recommend it to any Christian that wishes to better understand the mind of God and our place in His story of redemption. Reading this volume should enable a person to better understand the Bible, the purpose for which it is given and the God who graciously speaks to us in it.
