"Much recent scholarship has emphasized the narrative quality of Scripture. This book takes that insight and brings it to life, enabling even the beginner to grasp the sense of Scripture as a single great story--a drama in which we are all invited to play a part. I am delighted to see solid scholarship made easily accessible in this splendid fashion."--N. T. Wright, University of St. Andrews
"A masterful job of presenting the Bible as an organic whole. All who want to enrich their understanding of the account of God's redemptive plan will benefit from reading this book."--Tremper Longman III, Westmont College
