This book puts clear, readable Bible study aids at your fingertips. It contains thirteen substantial essays from some of today's best evangelical scholars that introduce the big-picture storyline of the Bible, the theology of the Old and New Testaments, how to read the different sections of Scripture, and what happened between the testaments. These essays by such authors as C. John Collins, Thomas Schreiner, Vern Poythress, and Darrell Bock form the third volume in a series drawn from the ESV Study Bible, making these helpful overviews available in a stand-alone format. In addition to essays on each genre of the Bible, the book addresses the general Greco-Roman world and specific Jewish groups at the time of the New Testament. To aid in putting Bible passages in context, it also includes timelines of the Old and New Testaments and intertestamental events. Understanding the Big Picture of the Bibleis a helpful tool for any readers who want to get more out of their Bible reading.
