9780310414315: Understanding the Bible

This book answers foundational questions: Who wrote the Bible? What is its message? Why is it thought to be a "holy" book? How does one read and interpret it? Best of all, though, you'll broaden your vision of Jesus Christ, the focal point of Scripture. How? By better understanding the geographical, religious, and historical concerns that shaped the world in which he lived. You'll see Jesus as never before: both as a man of his times and culture, and as the culmination of a divine providence that prepared the way for the ministry of the Messiah. Written by renowned preacher, writer, and apologist John Stott, this new, expanded edition includes - Questions at the beginning of each chapter to help you focus - New, up-to-date maps for the chapters on history and geography - An index to help you speedily access areas of interest.

From the Publisher:

To apprehend Jesus in his fullness, writes world-renowned scholar John Stott, it is essential to understand the setting within which God offers him to us. He sent him to a particular place, at a particular time, and within a particular framework of truth. To new Christians as well as seasoned believers who want a fresh perspective, Understanding the Bible offers a strong grasp of the Bible's message and its focal point, Jesus Christ. New features in this edition include focus questions at the beginning of each chapter, new maps, and an index.

From the Author:

John R. W. Stott is rector emeritus of All Souls Church in London and has a worldwide ministry as Bible expositor, conference speaker, and writer. His other books include Basic Christianity, Christ the Controversialist, and Understanding Christ
