Disclaimer: Christian books are a wonderful gift that God has given to the Body of Christ. They help us grow, mature our faith, challenge and sharpen us in truth - but they can never replace the infaillable Word of God given to us in Scripture. The measure of a benecifial book must always be that its premises arise from truths rooted and grounded in the Bible. You will not always agree with everything as put forth in some of the titles we recommend, but we encourage you to read with a discerning spirit (1 John 4:1)
From beginning to end, the Bible reveals the glory of Jesus. But for many Bible readers, it doesn't seem that simple. We're often unsure how the Bible's many stories, characters, events relate together and connect to Jesus. Some are tempted to force the pieces of the Bible together, making superficial jumps to him. Others give up trying to understand the Bible altogether.
Christ from Beginning to End is written to help Christians understand just how the different stories and parts of Scripture fits together to reveal the glory of Christ Jesus. In Part 1, Wellum and Hunter reintroduce us to the Bible—what it is, how it comes to us, and what it's centrally about. Then, in Part 2, they walk from one side of the Bible's story to the other, carefully tracing its storyline from Genesis to Revelation.
As readers see how our triune God's plan unfolds through his covenants, they will be equipped for a lifetime of seeing Christ's glory in Scripture.
“This book is simple, but not simplistic, and it is accessible to those who are reading the Bible for the first time and helpful for those who have read the Bible their entire lives." - Thomas R. Schreiner, Professor of New Testament Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
