We know the stories - Adam and Eve, David and Goliath, Jesus feeding the five thousand. We know the verses - John 3:16, Psalm 23, 1 Corinthians 13. But how many of us can take the separate pieces and fit them into the Bible as a whole? With the common practice of taking passages out of context, even active Bible readers tackling a chapter or more every day can easily lose sight of the whole biblical story. James Chatham, a beloved minister and Bible teacher, has spent decades offering the panorama of Scripture from Genesis to Revelation to those who want to understand God's Word more fully. He now spreads the wealth in this practical volume. In twenty-six short segments designed to facilitate Bible study, CREATION TO REVELATION weaves the disparate stories and familiar verses into a complete narrative and thematic framework, taking "the whole counsel of God" into account. Pertinent sidebars, carefully designed discussion questions, and two helpful appendixes - a chronology of the Bible's story and select daily Bible readings - enhance Chatham's overview. Extremely accessible to a wide audience, this pithy book is meant not to replace the Bible but rather to lure us into reading it - and to help us better understand its message.

The volume also includes over 600 photos, charts, and maps that serve as visual aids.

Steven McKenzie here surveys the historical books of the Old Testament -- Joshua through Ezra-Nehemiah -- for their historical context, contents, form, and themes, communicating them clearly and succinctly for an introductory audience. / By providing a better understanding of biblical history writing in its ancient context, McKenzie helps readers come to terms with tensions between the Bible's account and modern historical analyses. Rather than denying the results of historical research or dismissing its practitioners as wrongly motivated, he suggests that the source of the perceived discrepancy may lie not with the Bible but with the way in which it has been read. He also calls into question whether the genre of the Bible's historical books has been properly understood.

    The poetic books of the Old Testament--Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and the Song of Solomon--are often called humankind's reach toward God. The other books of the Old Testament picture God's reach toward man through the redemptive story. Yet these five books reveal the very heart of men and women struggling with monumental issues such as suffering, sin, forgiveness, joy, worship, and the passionate love between a man and woman.

    C. Hassell Bullock, a noted Old Testament scholar, delves deep into the hearts of the five poetic books, offering readers helpful details, like:

  • Hermeneutical considerations for each book
  • Theological content and themes
  • Detailed analyses of each book
  • Cultural perspectives.
  • Hebrew is a language of "intrinsic musical quality that naturally supports poetic expression," says Bullock in his introduction. That poetic expression comes from the heart of the Old Testament writers and reaches all of us exactly where we are in our own struggles and joys.
