9780615701677: A Thumbnail Sketch of the Bible Story

This is a thumbnail sketch, or general overview, of the Biblical story. It is written for those who have a church background and those who do not. A primary goal of this writing is to keep the story simple. Broad historical strokes are taken but highlights of God leading, loving, and reaching out to humankind is always present. The length of this thumbnail sketch is deliberately short in hopes more will read its contents and give greater attention to the mountain peaks that transcend the Biblical landscape. It is a preparation for more serious studies. Some suggested uses of this manuscript would include: those who have no church background and are exploring Christian thought, first time visitors to church, a curriculum for small groups, and preparation for teachers and ministerial students. The age range can cover older children through adolescents and adults. Why? Because God intended His story to be simple! We will begin with the story of the Creation and Fall, make a short stop for the period between the Testaments, and conclude with the ultimate victory occurring in Revelation. There are depths in the story that will take us a lifetime to understand, but the story line of the Bible is no great mystery. It is simple and clear for all of us to understand. Come and see!
