The Big Story of the Bible

The whole story of the Bible in 6 ‘chapters’: Creation,  Crisis, Covenant, Christ,  the  Church and Consummation.

“My hope is that, during the course of the series, we will all learn something new about God’s plan for his creation and our place in it. One of my lecturers at Bible College, Dave Perry, used to delight in pointing out the echoes of the Old Testament in the New – I trust we will begin to hear some of those too because they make Bible reading a real journey of discovery and fill us with awe at how the Holy Spirit put this amazing book together to train, encourage and inspire us.”
