A User-Friendly Introduction to Interpreting and Understanding God's Word

Many Christians view the Bible as a book that they know they should read, but it can be hard to know where to start. If they spend time regularly reading it, it can often feel like a chore to be checked off for the day. What many miss is that the Bible is a sweeping story full of narrative, poetry, and letters--something to be marveled at and enjoyed.

In The Epic Story of the Bible, Greg Gilbert aims to teach Christians--or those interested in Christianity--what the Bible is and how to study it. Explaining the various genres and major themes woven throughout Scripture, Gilbert helps readers appreciate the word of God with less confusion and greater confidence. Adapted from the ESV Story of Redemption Bible.

  • Accessible: Written in an approachable and easy-to-read format
  • Ideal for New Christians or Interested Non-Christians: A good introduction to understanding the Bible for those wanting to take the next step in learning more about their faith
  • Gospel-Oriented: Points readers to the gospel for the purpose of deeper understanding and worship
  • Examines Major Scriptural Themes: Gilbert shows how themes such as God's presence, covenant, kingship, and sacrifice are woven throughout Scripture
