What is the Bible and how is it relevant to me? This book is the perfect read for anyone asking those questions in the twenty-first century.
Bishop Lesslie Newbigin insisted on the importance of recovering the grand narrative of Scripture as both essential truth for the church and an effective way to engage culture. In our cultural moment, characterised by individualism, identity politics and social fragmentation it is vital to recover the Bible as the overarching human story that makes sense of life.
The Bible: A Story That Makes Sense of Life communicates the arc of the biblical narrative and connects its core themes with our human condition in a way that is intellectually rigorous, personally transformative and culturally engaged. Underpinned by a depth of scholarship, the book is non-technical in style, making it accessible for the widest possible market - including Christians and seekers interested in the Bible. The book will also provide a model for Bible communicators and church leaders wishing to engage more deeply with the relevance of the Bible in our cultural moment.
