In this engaging overview of the story line and theology of the Bible, Craig Bartholomew and Michael Goheen work their way through the Bible as a drama with six acts--creation, sin, Israel, Jesus, mission, and new creation. Their study provides an introduction to the Bible and a commentary on important passages, but it is also a theological reflection on the ongoing story and a call for participation in God's grand narrative. It will be a useful resource for professors and students in Scripture or worldview classes and pastors and teachers looking for assistance in developing a compelling presentation of the biblical story.

Review 1 for The Drama of Scripture: Finding Our Place in the Biblical Story
Date:January 30, 2007
Great exposition of the biblical content from the beginning of the Bible to the end. The Bible is about much more than being sure one goes to heaven when one dies. The scriptures are about nothing less than God's plan of redemption in Jesus to redeem a sin infected creation/cosmos. For instance see Romans ch. 8:19-24, along with 2 Peter 3:13 and Revelation 21:1-5. This book does an outstanding job of helping one to see the big picture of God's plan of redemption as it unfolds through the pages of scripture. Tackles the overarching theme(s) of the bible so often missed by biblical studies. Also gets into quite a few details along the way. This is a keeper for sure. Good introductory work for making sense of the biblical story as a whole. For an advanced study with similar content but at a heavy weight treatment, don't miss Chris Wright's truly excellent major new work, The Mission of God.
