Overview

The Unfolding Story of God's Ultimate Plan of Restoration

The Bible is the greatest book ever written, and it's more than just a book-it's the very Word of God. It unveils the unfolding story of God's ultimate plan to restore mankind's relationship with Him. The answers to life's deepest questions are found within its pages. It reveals who we are, why we are here, who God is, and how we can know Him. However, for many people, the great riches of the Bible remain undiscovered and its exquisite beauty, unseen. The relevance of the peculiar accounts of ancient people in faraway lands seems just too obscure, yet their thirst for God remains. If you are one of these people, then this book is for you.

The Essence will take you on a personal, guided journey of discovery through some of the most essential passages of Scripture. The significance of each will be revealed, and you will begin to understand how everything fits together. You will see Jesus as the Offspring of the woman, the Passover Lamb, the Bread from heaven, the Water from the rock, the Abandoned One, the Shepherd's Shepherd, the Suffering Servant, the virgin's Son, and so much more. In the end, you will hopefully come to know and love both God and His Word much more deeply.

"They read from the Book of the Law of God, making it clear and giving the meaning so that the people understood what was being read." - Nehemiah 8:8 NIV

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: John Pasquet grew up in a strong Christian home and was deeply impacted by the Navigator ministry in college.
