Review 1 for The Story of Israel: A Biblical Theology
excellent resource !!
Date:January 11, 2012
the bible is not just a collection of writings for giving us tidbits and pieces of 'verses' for the day, but rather the bible is a whole grand story of God's unfolding redemption in and through particulars of history. in this book, that theological history is traced, opened up, and explained from the beginning of the bible, to the end. this study truly honors scripture by explaining it from beginning to end, paying careful attention to the historical, literary, and theological issues of scripture itself, and then helping to grasp what that means for us today. simply put, if you want to grasp what the biblical content is all about, this study is an excellent tool towards understanding the content of the work of God as laid out in the biblical writngs. it is much more than just "going to heaven when one dies", it is nothing less than God redeeming a fallen creation and then having Himself as the source of all hope and love that keeps it all together and lasting.
