"The Book of God & the people of God go together; they are inseparable. God has elected both to be witnesses to divine revelation & instruments of God's continuing confrontation of humankind. By the living word God called the old covenant people into being before there was a written word. God also called the new covenant church into being before the New Testament was written. The books of the Bible were not written by atheists or agnostics but by believing members of the covenant community. In the Bible is a record of those mighty word-deeds through which God called both the Bible & the church into being ... The story of the Bible is in a sense the story of the people of God, & we are 'God's own people'--therefore, the story of the Bible is our story: the story of our sin & need, yet the story of God's grace working in us & through us. We, the church gathered for worship & study & the church scattered in the common vocations of life, have the privilege & responsibility of joining our witness to that of 'all the saints who from their labors rest'." --from The Mighty Acts of God.

- Publisher The Mighty Acts of God retains most of the original text penned by Rhodes in 1964. March revises dated language and concepts, both historical and theological, to be current with contemporary scholarship. This is the story of God's creation of and relationship to the world, from the history of Israel, through the Jesus event, and onto the early missionary activity of the first apostles. Study questions are provided.
