Introducing Scripture


3 in stock

What is the big-picture storyline of the Bible? What are the different literary genres of Scripture, and how should they be read? What are the important theological themes in the Old and New Testaments? What happened in the time between the testaments? Such questions are the focus of this collection of concise studies on the Bible and its contents, which includes time lines of the Old and New Testaments and intertestamental events. Useful both as a general overview and as a tool for more specific reference and training, this volume will help readers to grow in their understanding of Scripture and their ability to apply it to their lives. Pastors, church leaders, students, and other Christians engaged in studying and teaching GodÆs Word will benefit from these studies, originally featured as articles in the ESV Study Bible and written by notable contributors, including Vern Poythress, Gordon Wenham, David Howard, Thomas R. Schreiner and Darrell Bock.
