"The whole Bible is one story. It begins in a garden, ends in a city, and all the way through it points us to Jesus Christ."
If you are new to reading the Bible or would enjoy a quick overview of the Christian faith, then this is a good place to start. Each chapter has a key to the Bible and it explores Jesus' birth, death and resurrection.
The story begins in a garden and ends in a city. In each chapter you can also find small notes about what you will discover or learn. There is also a section explaining the reason for worship and a section with a prayer at the end of the chapter. Questions for Discussion are also included.
The chapters include:
The Garden - A short version of the creation story focusing on Adam and Eve.
The Law - Moses and the Ten Commandments. The author gives explanations and new insight.
The Sacrifice - A comparison between the High Priest asking forgiveness for sins and Jesus' Crucifixion.
The Invitation - How a belief in Christ can satisfy the thirsts of your soul.
The Manger - Jesus' birth and why his life was holy.
The Cross - Explains the challenge of understanding the Bible story without a working knowledge of the main stories in the Bible. This chapter explains what happened during the hours Jesus suffered for sins on the cross.
The Tomb - Why Jesus is alive and how he defeated death.
The Spirit - How the message was spread through the world and how people learned to speak in languages they had never learned.
The Fight - Repentance and a call to God to rescue you from "this body of death" in order to fight spiritual battles that cause you to have unpredictable tides of emotions, deceptions of the mind or impulses of the will. An unending battle for sure until peace is on earth.
The City - A new heaven and a new earth. Descriptions of what life will be like when God creates a new heaven and earth.
"10 Keys for Unlocking the Bible" can be a refresher course for Christians or it can be an introduction to the concepts of why Jesus died and rose again. Overall, it is a beautiful book filled with hope and love. If you are trying to explain the Easter story to your children, this book will give you all you need to explain why Jesus died and why there is hope because he rose again.
