The Bible: The Big Picture is a resource for students, fledgling churches or individuals wanting to have an overview of what the Bible is about. It does not seek to replace the individual study of Biblical doctrines or even history but more as an encouragement to do so.
In essence, the book started off as a chronology of events within the Old Testament but that led to what could be regarded as a timeline related to the ‘people of God’ and how God’s promises were and still are linked to the nation or individual’s responsibilities.
There is a précis for each book of the Bible and a one-line statement for each chapter within each book together with an Appendix giving details of various related places and journeys.
The closing parts of the book deal mainly with the growth of the early Christian church up until the time of Constantine in 325 AD and cover the opposition from without ‘persecution’ and also from within ‘heresy’.
The Bible: The Big Picture is not interspersed with references to chapters and verses since the idea was to assume that the reader might well doubt the veracity of the Bible and hence not value proof from within the Bible. Hopefully, the result is something that is easy to read and interesting enough to generate further investigation.
A must read!
Many Christians are familiar with the story Jesus told about the rich young ruler. He said a camel would sooner pass through the eye of a needle than the rich man would enter the kingdom of Heaven.
What many people don’t realize, is that in the same book of the Bible, Jesus also told the parable of the three servants given gifts by their master according to their abilities. When the master returned from his travels, he demanded an accounting of those gifts, and he praised the two who had multiplied their gifts but cast the third out into the darkness and gnashing of teeth because he had not grown his gift.
The Love of Money explains that it’s not only okay to be a Christian and build wealth, but it also teaches you how to do it effectively while focusing your efforts on serving God.
James asks a pointed question in his brief book in the Bible when he simply says, “What is your life?” He then answers his own question by stating, “It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.” Psalm 90 reminds us that “the days of our lives are seventy years; And if by reason of strength they are eighty years.” That’s somewhere between 36,792,000 and 42,048,000 minutes, both very large numbers. The question for us then becomes, what are we doing with our minutes? Are we making them matter in ways that count? Are we spending them in ways that will lay up treasure in heaven, or here on earth where “moth and rust will destroy”?
Minutes Matter . . . Making Every Beat Count will challenge you to live your days in a way that will glorify God and make a difference well beyond your years here on earth.

Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse.
