Overview

The Bible is not an easy book to understand. Because of its massive size, and because it is not arranged as a typical volume, it is easy to get lost and not realize that it tells just one overarching story. Beginning with Genesis and ending with Revelation, Making Connections skillfully connects the many dots so that readers can enjoy the good news of the redemptive story.

This interactive resource reveals that the Bible is far more than a random collection of insights, commands, stories, and promises. Rather, it is one story—the story of God’s redeeming love. And Making Connections shows that this good news story did not stop in the first century, but rather continues in your life today.
