Sixty-six books written by forty people over nearly 2,000 years, in two languages and several different genres. A worldwide bestseller published in countless sizes and bindings, translations and languages. It has been sworn by in court, fought over by religious people, quoted in arguments. The Bible is clearly no ordinary book. How can we begin to read and understand it as a whole?
In his excellent overview, Vaughan Roberts gives the big picture – showing how the different parts of the Bible fit together under the theme of the kingdom of God. He gives us both the encouragement and the tools to read it with confidence and understanding. He points us to the Bible’s supreme subject, Jesus Christ, and the salvation God offers through him.
Vaughan Roberts is Rector of St Ebbe’s Church, Oxford. He is also a popular speaker at Spring Harvest, and is a founder member of ‘9:38’ which encourages people to consider full-time gospel ministry.
