"In this new edition, Anderson's readable and perceptive study book provides one of the most accessible brief presentations of what the
Bible is about that one will find anywhere."
Patrick D. Miller, Princeton Theological Seminary
"Clear, accessible, reliable, up to date, and
to the point. In a time of enormous biblical
illiteracy, there is an acute need for guidance.
In much church practice, moreover, there is
a tendency to use isolated texts here and
there, and so there is need for an overview
that shows the whole picture of scripture in
a coherent way. This brief articulation of 'the
drama' meets those needs admirably."
Walter Brueggemann, McPheeters Professor of Old Testament Emeritus, at Columbia Theological Seminary
"Anderson's presentation of the Bible's
dramatic movement from creation to consummation
continues to be pertinent and timely.
This carefully revised fourth edition contains
updated bibliographies and study questions
that enhance its appeal for adult Bible studies
and college courses. Of greatest value,
though, remains Anderson's own passionate
engagement with Scripture and its drama.
He claims that 'one should be a poet to
understand the Bible,' and he writes with a
compelling poetic grace...."
Ben C. Ollenburger, Professor of Biblical Theology, Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminary
