The Epic Story of the Bible: How to Read and Understand God's Word (Paperback)
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.
