Seeing and Understanding the Truth About God

We live in a visual culture.  Today, people increasingly rely upon visuals to help them understand new and difficult concepts.  The rise and stunning popularity of the Internet infographic has given us a new way in which to convey data, concepts, and ideas.

But the visual portrayal of truth is not a novel idea.  Indeed, God himself used visuals to teach truth to his people.  The tabernacle of the Old Testament was a visual representation of man’s distance from God and God’s condescension to his people.  Each part of the tabernacle was meant to display something of man’s treason against God and God’s kind response.  Likewise, the sacraments of the New Testament are visual representations of man’s sin and God’s response.  Even the cross was both reality and a visual demonstration.

As teachers and lovers of sound theology, Challies and Byers have a deep desire to convey the concepts and principles of systematic theology in a fresh, beautiful, and informative way.  In this book, they have made the deepest truths of the Bible accessible in a way that can be seen and understood by a visual generation.

    This is a good introduction to systematic theology. It’s a very easy read but is nothing you wouldn’t have seen before if you’ve read something more in-depth. The book is well designed and attractive to pick up, this helps me with wanting to read it. Some of the visuals are great, some of them are a bit arbitrary, and they are all basically just a summary of the text which is really the strong point of this book.

    I plan to lend this book to Christians I know who are not readers, this is the kind of book that I think anyone can read.
