How Do You Read the Bible? The Bible recounts a single story - one that began at creation, encompasses our lives today, and will continue till Christ's return and beyond.
In What Is Biblical Theology?, Jim Hamilton introduces us to this narrative, helping us understand the worldview of the biblical writers so that we can read the Old and New Testaments as those authors intended. Tracing the key patterns, symbols and themes that bind the Bible together, this book will help you understand Scripture's unified message and find your place in the great story of redemption.
"Getting oriented to the whole story of the Bible is the only way to right interpretation and right living... Jim Hamilton has given us an outstanding introduction to this import yet neglected discipline. If the interpretive approach of Hamilton's book is applied, the reader will be able to better understand God's Word, know the mind of Christ, and glorify God."?
