For all who are wondering how the pieces fit into the jigsaw of God's revelation, Colin Smith has provided an answer, which is refreshingly simple, biblically accurate, and will prove phenomenally helpful to the serious Bible student and the new beginner alike. — Alistair Begg, senior pastor, Parkside Church In Unlocking the Bible Story, Colin Smith moves gradually through portions of the Bible to explain how it all holds together. He tells God's one grand story of salvation and reflects on major themes along the way. In volume 1 he moves through the Pentateuch and Historical Books of the Old Testament, which tell the story of God creating the world, choosing a people for Himself, and loving them despite their continued sin. Includes the study guide formerly sold separately. One of the most urgent needs in the church today is for a crisp and comprehensive knowledge of the Bible's storyline. To grasp how the sacred history moves from Genesis to Revelation not only brings fresh insight into how the Bible hangs together, and what each part contributes to the whole, but also is crucial for developing a Christian worldview. Colin Smith has met these needs admirably. I hope these volumes will circulate widely and be read and re-read. — D. A. Carson, research professor New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, cofounder of The Gospel Coalition

The Old Testament and the Gospels have three levels of interpretation: historical, Christological, and prophetic. Because Christ is fully revealed in the New Testament, the epistles have only two levels, the historical and the prophetic. Much is lost when Christians only see and study the Scriptures from the historical vintage point. Rightly Dividing the Word reveals these hidden prophetic treasures to the discerning student.

With page upon page of names like Melchizedek, Mephibosheth and Meshelemiah, hundreds of stories – some touching, others humourous and still others that are gruesome, sometimes-difficult-to-understand theology and strange visions, who wouldn't feel overwhelmed and confused about the Bible? How does it all fit together? But imagine that the Bible is a 1 000 piece puzzle. It's easier to figure out what you're putting together if you have the picture on the box to go by and the corners and straight edges as guides. The chapters in this book provide the puzzle's box cover, corners and straight-edged pieces, providing you with the key to unlock the secret of the Bible. Putting together the Puzzle of the Bible breaks up both the Old and New Testament in digestiblel chunks, or ‘eras’. When you read or study Bible passages, the knowledge of those eras will enable you to place the passage in its chronological context and easily understand how the puzzle fits together. Putting together the Puzzle of the Bible is ideal for those who have little or no familiarity with the Bible or for pastors and lay leaders to help teach a better understanding of the Word of God.

The Mission of God

Unlocking the Bible's Grand Narrative

Category: Religion

Page: 583

View: 548

Winner, 2007 Christianity Today Missions/Global Affairs Book Most Christians would agree that the Bible provides a basis for mission. But Christopher Wright boldly maintains that mission is bigger than that--there is in fact a missional basis for the Bible! The entire Bible is generated by and is all about God's mission. In order to understand the Bible, we need a missional hermeneutic of the Bible, an interpretive perspective that is in tune with this great missional theme. We need to see the "big picture" of God's mission and how the familiar bits and pieces fit into the grand narrative of Scripture. Beginning with the Old Testament and the groundwork it lays for understanding who God is, what he has called his people to be and do, and how the nations fit into God's mission, Wright gives us a new hermeneutical perspective on Scripture. This new perspective provides a solid and expansive basis for holistic mission. Wright emphasizes throughout a holistic mission as the proper shape of Christian mission. God's mission is to reclaim the world--and that includes the created order--and God's people have a designated role to play in that mission.

In 'Unlocking the Scriptures', Cyril Barber walks us through a specific text (Abraham and Sarah) of the Bible, showing us how to discover its riches, writes Warren Wiersbe, well-known author and conference speaker. He goes on to say, You're not just holding a book in your hand, you're holding a key that can open the doors of Scripture and make exciting discoveries. Dr. Barber has earned these glowing words with a lifetime of intense Bible study and ministry. His academic endeavors under Dr. Howard G. Hendricks of the Dallas Theological Seminary prepared him early on to study and to teach others how to study for the most benefit. He knows well the patience and diligence required to get the most out of studying the Bible, as well as the rewards for those who persist. He says, Bible study requires diligence, an easy-to-learn technique and perseverance. In the end, however, one's efforts are handsomely rewarded. In the intervening years, Dr. Barber garnered degrees from American, British and Canadian institutions as well as earning his doctorate from Biola University. He has served on the faculties of Trinity Evangelical School, Rosemead School of Psychology and Simon Greenleaf University; At present he serves as Associate Pastor of Plymouth Church in Whittier, CA, responsible for pastoral care and visitation, counseling and teaching. He is the author of over 30 books and numerous journal articles. Charles C. Ryrie says, The Bible is the greatest of all books; to study it is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals. Whatever time you spend with Unlocking the Scriptures will be time you will treasure -- time well spent.

A Layperson's Guide

Unlocking the Bible is essentially a lay-person’s guide to biblical interpretation. Its thesis is that understanding the text requires a prior understanding of critical technique. With this in view, the book examines historical, literary and cultural issues which are essential for an appreciation of the Bible today, and suggests that a consideration of the authors’ primary aims is key to an accurate exegesis of the text. Unlocking the Bible, although intended for general consumption, should be of particular interest to evangelical Christians whose approach to the Bible can often be ad hoc or arbitrary.
