This book helps us grasp the Bible as a coherent story in which we all have a part to play. Have you ever wondered how the Bible story all hangs together? Bartholomew and Goheen suggest that we view it as a drama with six acts - creation, sin, Israel, Jesus, mission and new creation. In this engaging book, the authors share their vision of God working in his world and in his people, as he labours to shape them into the great kingdom that has been his plan from the beginning. But how does this ongoing story relate to us in the here and now? And what, truly, might our place in it be?

"'... [enables] even the beginner to grasp the sense of Scripture as a single great story - a drama in which we are all invited to pay a part. I am delighted to see solid scholarship made easily accessible in this splendid fashion.' Tom Wright, Bishop of Durham 'The Drama of Scripture should be read, discussed, and acted on by Christians everywhere... Engaging almost every book of the Bible, Bartholomew and Goheen help us see the dynamic forward movement of the story that has not yet reached its end. The story encompasses us and calls for our conscious, enthusiastic engagement.' Jim Skillen, President, Center for Public Justice, Washington, D.C"
