Some of you may be wondering why so many people are talking about the Bible’s storyline lately. What’s the big deal? Why is it so important for Christians to be able to connect the dots of the Bible’s grand narrative?

In this blog post, I list four reasons, and in a more recent post, I listed twelve books that showcase the Bible’s storyline. God’s Big Picture by Vaughan Roberts was on that list. Here’s what I wrote:

This book shows how the Bible is telling the story of the kingdom of God. In just a few short chapters, Roberts walks through the story of God’s kingdom as it unfolds in the Bible.

One of my favorite aspects of this book is the alliteration (the pattern of the kingdom, the perished kingdom, the promised kingdom, the partial kingdom, the prophesied kingdom, the present kingdom, the proclaimed kingdom, and the perfected kingdom). I’m a nerd, I know.
