Glimpses of a Greater Glory: A Devotional Through the Storyline of the Bible

Overview

The Storyline of the Bible devotional was designed to provide an overview of the narrative of the Bible--keeping you in the actual text of the Bible with connecting overviews and questions that help bridge the world of the Bible to our world today.

Overview

The Storyline of the Bible devotional was designed to provide an overview of the narrative of the Bible--keeping you in the actual text of the Bible with connecting overviews and questions that help bridge the world of the Bible to our world today. Seeing the larger Biblical narrative can dramatically change the way you understand Christianity. Without this larger perspective, it's easy to view the Bible as a collection of moralistic stories, subtlety leading to a self-centered faith that essentially sees the Bible as a divinely inspired self-help book. This approach gets us no where. However, when you begin to grasp the grand narrative which begins with those powerful four words, "In the beginning God..." you start to realize that perhaps this life and this world is not about me, but about a God whose plan for redemption is far greater than I can imagine or hope. This is the good news that emerges as you connect the many pieces of this life-changing drama. This devotional will not only help you see the larger narrative but hopefully the main Actor who graciously makes Himself known.

"Many books are now coming out on 'faith and work'-but I know of none like this. David Kim gives us a way to reflect on our vocations and our lives in light of the gospel and the Word-in prayer before the face of God. There is deep theology here but it is not a textbook, but rather a devotional guide. Unique--I recommend it!"
- Tim Keller, Senior Pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church

"A devotional book that feeds our souls must at the very least draw us close to the God who has redeemed us. This wonderful book certainly does that--but it does much more. It points us to the Redeemer who, as the Sovereign Lord of all creation, calls us to serve the goals of His glorious Kingdom in our daily lives."
- Richard Mouw, President, Fuller Theological Seminary
