Item description for The Promise and the Blessing: A Historical Survey of the Old and New Testaments by Michael A. Harbin...
Overview "A historical survey of the Old and New Testaments of the Bible"--Provided by publisher.
Publishers Description The Bible is a collection of writings that together tell a unified story. But exactly how do all the pieces fit together? In a single volume, The Promise and the Blessing connects the dots of the Old and New Testament books to reveal the big picture of salvation history. Organized chronologically rather than canonically, this book traces the flow of Israel s history and shows how the New Testament proceeds out of the Old. It begins with God s creation of the cosmos and the initial problem of the fall of man. Then it traces God s solutions to that problem as he selects first one man, Abraham, then his line, and then the nation of Israel to provide the Messiah. Finally, it focuses on the Messiah himself and looks at how the gospel of Jesus was spread throughout the known world. The Promise and the Blessing is easy to use and ideal for anyone who wants to understand the grand narrative of the Bible. It features numerous beautiful, full-color photos, as well as sidebars and brief, fascinating breakouts of supplementary information. Maps, illustrations, summaries, and insightful notes help to illuminate the text. Field-tested in the classroom, The Promise and the Blessing is designed for Old and New Testament survey classes and will provide all readers of the Bible with a better understanding of how the drama that began in Eden winds through Israel s history to its fulfillment in Jesus Christ."

Great historical info! Mar 4, 2010
This was one of the textbooks for my Bible class and it has a lot of good information. It flows fairly well.
Awesome read! Aug 18, 2009
I had to read this book for a Bible class but I loved it so much I recommended it to others as a devotional to read along with the Bible. They also enjoyed it! If you want to be enriched in God's knowledge while also getting a better historical understanding of the times of Moses, David, Jesus, Paul and so on this is the book to read! God Bless you all who choose to buy and read!

This is the best survey I've read so far. It gives a very clear picture of the history of what was going on in Israel as the books were being written. It ties each book of the Bible together really well in conjunction with what was going on throughout the rest of Scripture and why it was important to the original audience as well as to current readers. I will definitely refer back to this book as a recourse when questions come up in the future.
