Download The Unfinished Drama of Scripture Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle
The Unfinished Drama of Scripture is a fresh retelling of the biblical narrative as a sprawling yet cohesive six-act play, in which disciples of Christ still play significant roles today. The author asserts that theological misunderstandings occur when we do not recognize which "act" we are living in, and therefore misconstrue God's intentions and lose our identity and mission. He contrasts competing religious and philosophical worldviews with the True Story of the world as found in the Bible, and clearly outlines the scriptural trajectory from Creation, the Fall, Israel's calling, Jesus, the Church and the New Creation. Through careful study from Genesis through Revelation, this is a call to grasp and live out the divine purposed that God always intended and to better know the God of the drama who pursues us with astonishing perseverance.
