How well do you know His story?

By the time a Christian reaches young adulthood, he is likely to be quite familiar with every major story in the Bible, but not from having studied them in any particular order.

Ask an average Bible student to arrange certain characters and events chronologically, and the results are telling.

Telling God’s Story looks closely at the Bible from its beginning in Genesis to its conclusion in Revelation. By approaching Scripture as one purposefully flowing narrative, emphasizing the inter-connectedness of the text, veteran college professors Preben Vang and Terry G. Carter reinforce the Bible’s greatest teachings and help readers in their own ability to share God’s story effectively with others.

Ideal for classroom settings, this second edition of Telling God’s Story now features all supporting charts, photographs, and illustrations in full color!

Vang and Carter have tapped into a significant truth, namely, that the Bible is not a list of manageable propositions, but a grand story of love and redemption. With love for the church and skills honed in the deep study of theology and Scripture, they guide us along the major contours of that story and help us comprehend the entire sweep of the drama of redemption.

—David B. Capes, Academic Dean, Houston Baptist University
