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.


The Big Picture: Getting Perspective on What's Really Important in LifeAuthor(s): Ben Carson M.D.

In his grade school days, Ben Carson would hardly have been voted “most likely to become a famous surgeon.” His classmates had already given him another label: class dummy. Then a light clicked on for Ben—and a consuming passion for learning that catapulted him from “zero” test grades to a Yale scholarship, a pioneering role in modern medicine, and an influence that has extended from inner-city schools to corporate boardrooms and Washington corridors of power. What made the difference? Belief in his own potential, a commitment to education and making the most of his opportunities to learn, determination to make the world a better place, and faith in a God who knows no limits. Seeing the Big Picture. In The Big Picture, Ben Carson reveals the spiritual and philosophical foundations that undergird not just his dramatic career, but his approach to all of life. As in his best-selling Gifted Hands, Dr. Carson shares colorful behind-the-scenes anecdotes. As in Think Big, he describes his practical principles for success. But The Big Picture is more than an autobiography or a personal-effectiveness manual. Rather, it’s a multifaceted look at the faith and vision that can see us all through hardship and failure, and stir us to bold exploits on behalf of something greater than ourselves.Dr. Carson begins by describing how he cultivated a Big-Picture perspective in his own life. Then he discusses ways to which all of us can approach parenting, family, business and friendships with the Big Picture in mind. Finally, he looks at some pressing social issues—in particular, racial diversity, health care, and education—and considers how we ought to view them and what we should do about them in light of the Big Picture. Drawing on a vast array of experiences in roles ranging from trailblazing surgeon to public speaker, to husband and family man, Ben Carson shows how we can turn the course of our lives, our communities, our country, and our world by keeping the Big Picture always in mind.
