At first glance, the Bible is a complex collection of books. Are these works a mere jumble of unconnected writings, or is there a unity that binds them together? Do the old & New Testaments make up one book, or should they be read separately? Are the two peoples of God - Israel & the church - distinct from each other or one & the same? Is the way to God for lost people the same throughout both Testaments? Does God rule over one kingdom or two? Is the hope of Israel different from the hope of the church, or might it be the same? Does God have a single eternal plan for his redeemed creation, or two distinct aims? Are we meant to be New Testament Christians or Bible Christians? Explore this little volume & find biblical answers to some really big questions.
