How well do you know His story?By the time a Christian reaches young adulthood, he is likely to be quite familiar with every major story in the Bible, but not from having studied them in any particular order. Ask an average Bible student to arrange cer- tain characters and events chronologically, and the results are telling.Telling God’s Storylooks closely at the Bible from its beginning in Genesis to its conclusion in Revelation. By approaching Scripture as one purpose- fully flowing narrative, emphasizing the inter-connectedness of the text, veteran college professors Preben Vang and Terry G. Carter reinforce the Bible’s greatest teachings and help readers in their own ability to share God’s story effectively with others.Ideal for classroom settings, this second edition ofTelling God's Storynow features all supporting charts, photographs, and illustrations in full color!
