The Bible is the inspired Word of God, and over the centuries it has changed people’s lives and led them to God. Yet sometimes it can be a difficult book to understand. The culture in which the Bible was written is so different from our own that at times we struggle to understand what it means or how it is relevant to our modern lives.
In A Brief Survey of the Bible, Bible professors John Walton and Mark Strauss address this problem by giving you the background and context you need to successfully understand even the difficult parts of the Word of God. They provide you with an overview of the key themes of the major books in the Bible, show what the stories and teachings meant to the people at the time, and explain how the inspired words of the biblical authors apply to your own situation today. By the end, you will walk away with a greater understanding of the Bible, how all the books work together, and what your heavenly Father has done to make a way for you to come to him.
This DVD features:
