Knitting the Bible Together Apr 24, 2006
Mr. Beecher does an excellent job showing and tracing the unifying idea of Scripture. It's a little dry here and there, but very thorough and very informative. When you get done reading you will have a better understanding of what the Bible is all about. The Promise, is of course, the Messiah. Willis shows how the theme of the Messiah is woven through all of the Word, but in particular the prophets. His theory is that the writings of the prophets are not just a random collection of events, but focused and deliberate revelation of the purposes of God through the Messiah. He also shows how his theory holds up in spite of differences of opinion on authorship. Read this and you will have a much better idea of the context of the whole Bible, including the Kingdom of God.
