Reviews - What do customers think about God's Big Picture: Tracing the Story-Line of the Bible?
Great overview of the whole bible Jan 11, 2007
This book provided a wonderful overview of the entire bible in one book. Not an indepth study, but it was fun to read about the bible, all 66 books in one volume. It also helped in understanding how they all fit together and that the central theme is God's redemptive plan for mankind.
Great Starter Dec 11, 2006
Roberts is clear and concise. He works off of Goldsworthy's Gospel and Kingdom, but seeks to make it more accessible. He traces the storyline of the bible with the pattern of the kingdom, the perished k, the promised k, the partial k, the prophesied k, the present k, the proclaimed k, and the perfected k.
Well Structured and Simple to Understand. Dec 29, 2005
Having read 5 various books on this subject of the Kingdom of God, Mr. Roberts book was the most organized, structured, illustrated and understandable. It became the foundation for my own series on the Kingdom. A great first book since it lays the foundation necessary for understanding the more in depth books such as: Announcing the Kingdom and According to Plan.
Simple but Excellent Tool to tbe Introduction of Biblical Theology Aug 15, 2005
For anyone interested to know how the 66 books of the Bible fit together to point towards salvation in Christ, this is a great tool to use.
Biblical Theology Jun 22, 2004
I think this book is a an antidote against wrong spirituality and hermenutics which is the science of interpretation; understanding God's Will, Prayer and true worship, patience, hope and spiritual growth. Why did I put all together? Because once we know God's 'correct' Plan than we can have 'realistic' hope for life and therefore we can have realistic hope. Realistic hope helps us to pray realisticly. Realistic prayer helps us to understand God's Will and therefore we can have realistic submission, obeying God and His Word. This is a foundational book that everyone needs to know if they care about Spiritual Life. I think this book is capable of creating a right spiritual atmoshpere where true spiritualty can grow. This is book is a concise 'Biblical Theology' in the realm of Theology.
