About-

Most people probably have a copy of the Bible in their homes, some hold one in their hands each week at church-and perhaps even attend a Bible study- but not everyone sees or appreciates the great beauty and intricate composition of the Bible," writes author Drake Williams. "The Bible, as a great work of art, deserves to be considered in unity."

Combining first-rate scholarship with easy-to-understand language, Making Sense of the Bible examines the Bible as a literary work of art and reveals ten key threads that form the thematic tapestry spanning Old and New Testaments. With this book, the Bible will no longer be a jumble of unrelated books, promises, and exhortations, but a collective, cohesive, and more meaningful masterpiece to any reader who wishes to explore its full breadth and depth.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Drake Williams has produced a highly readable and simply presented exposition of some of the major theological themes that run through the Bible. It provides an excellent way for lay Christians to grasp the teaching of the Bible as a whole. People who find the Bible hard to understand will welcome this introductory study."
--I. Howard Marshall, Emeritus Professor of New Testament Exegesis and Honorary Research Professor, University of Aberdeen

"A solid primer for the Church's number one priority as we enter the new millennium: to recover the basic message of the Scriptures as one message from one book. Serious students of the Scriptures inside the church and classroom will find this summary of the basic themes of the Bible to be a reliable guide for beginning to read the Word for themselves."
--Scott J. Hafemann, Mary F. Rockefeller Distinguished Professor of New Testament, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary

"Drake Williams very readably traces some crucial themes through Scripture, underlining the wonderful continuity of God's Word through history."
--Craig S. Keener, Professor of New Testament, Palmer Theological Seminary
