About-

Like a golden cord, the covenant relationship between God and people runs through the Bible from beginning to end. The covenant is made, broken, and remade again and again. The death of Jesus on a cross was the final act by which God renewed the relationship of love and trust. So, says the author, the meaning of the Bible can best be unlocked by using the covenant as "a special key."

The covenant story is here divided into acts and scenes in order to emphasize that the Bible is a great drama played on the living stage of history. Following this absorbing drama, the reader ceases to think of the Bible as a confusing collection of stories, poems, songs, sermons, and prayers and becomes vividly aware of its grand design.

The author has written this book as a practical guide to understanding the Bible for youth and adults. He is eager to bring to them the insights of biblical scholarship, to lead them to an intensive and intelligent study of the Bible, and to move them to identify themselves as actors in the continuing drama of salvation by the grace of God. Parents, teachers, and other adults will also find profit and satisfaction in this pastor's extraordinary gift of narration and interpretation.

The Covenant Story of the Bible is written with a contagious conviction and enthusiasm. The author has struggled to answer the recurring question: How do I adequately communicate the story of the Bible to the young people of my church? Thus the book has come out of a pastoral concern and long teaching experience.
