Okay it's one of the least inspiring book titles ever conceived, but it does exactly what it says on the front.
Steve Levy has written it with Paul Blackham. It's 336 pages. There are 11 sections:
What the Bible says about itself
Creation to new creation
Kings to Exile
Acts and the church
The church in Revelation
Loving what I've read so far. I reckon this is the book I'll be giving to anyone wanting a grounding in Christ-focused biblical theology.
Here's a provocative paragraph early on:
"When you are reading any of the Old Testament books, whether Numbers, Leviticus, Kings or Chronicles, you are reading about the gospel of Jesus Christ. You are not reading an illustration of the gospel, you are not reading stories that can be reinterpreted in the light of the gospel. You are reading God's clear word about Jesus. That is how the Bible sees itself." (p22)
I'm sure I'll be posting quotes as I go. But seriously - go and buy this book!
