The Bible is not an easy book to understand. In fact, it is not a single book at all, but rather a library of sixty-six books that were written by at least forty different authors on three continents over a period of fifteen hundred years. God's Timeline will show you the foundation, or grand story, that holds all of these books together so that you can read the Bible with greater understanding.

What People are Saying About This
"Written in an easy to understand style, but filled with rich theological insights, Pastor Meyer's book wonderfully illumines the grand narrative at the heart of the Bible. Perfect for individual study or group settings, this book does what no other text I know does: provide a basic introduction to the Scriptures, the core truths of the faith, and the communal and sacramental life of the church. I highly recommend this book!"
Professor of New Testament and Ancient Christianity
University of Evansville
"The Bible is a big book. What draws together all of its histories, laws, poetry, wisdom, and prophecy? As Rick Meyer shows us so clearly, it's God's timeline, centering in the person and work of Jesus Christ. This is a terrific book to give to a new believeror to anyone looking for a simple but rich summary of the greatest story ever told."
J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology & Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California
"As a pastor I've always been told that it's not our job to teach the Bible, but to teach people the Bible. That's what Rick Meyer does. With clear and approachable scholarship that even a simple guy like me can understand, Meyer lays out the love story that is God's Word. I'm grateful for a book like this to recommend to my seeking friends."
