9780830813049: The Symphony of Scripture: Making Sense of the Bible's Many Themes

A beautiful symphony, but sometimes confusing.

The Bible is the sure Word of God, a help and guide for everyday life. But it's also filled with bewildering diversity poetry, history, and letters written by dozens of people in several languages.

What do the exodus, covenant, and priesthood have to do with grace, faith, and discipleship? What possible connection can there by between Sinai and Golgotha? How do we get from the Garden of Eden to the New Jerusalem?

This accessible introduction to the Bible emphasizes the unity within its diversity. Mark Strom traces the great themes in their recurring rhythms and patterns, helping the reader discern God's grand, overarching design for his creation.
