Publisher's Summary

Sixty-six books, 40 authors, written over nearly 2,000 years, in many different genres. A worldwide best seller published in countless translations and languages. A book that has been sworn by in court, fought over, and quoted in arguments. Clearly, the Bible is no ordinary book. So how can we begin to read and understand the Bible as a whole? 

In this excellent overview, Vaughan Roberts paints the big picture, showing how the different parts of the Bible fit together under the theme of the kingdom of God. He offers us tools to read it with confidence, enthusiasm and understanding. Vaughan 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 in Oxford, England, and author of God’s Big Picture and Life’s Big Questions. He is also a popular speaker at Spring Harvest and a founding member of 9:38, which encourages people to consider full-time Gospel ministry.

Great book!

This was a excellent book! The chapter numbers are off on the audible app, but all of the content is there in order, it just has the wrong numbers :)

Excellent! Required listening!

Any Christian can benefit from understanding better how The different parts of the biblical narrative fit together, and this book has really helped me with this. It was helpful also to have the kindle version to refer to at one or two points.
Vaughan Roberts always gives clear, insightful explanation on any topic.
