The story of the Bible and its account of God's action in the world give meaning to our lives and provide us with the foundation for our actions. The Drama of Scripture is an introduction to the basic story line and theology of the Bible. In considering the biblical story, the authors emphasize the unity of the whole, viewing the Bible as a drama in six acts--creation, sin, Israel, Christ, church, and new creation. Two overarching themes tie the biblical story together--covenant in the Old Testament and Kingdom in the New Testament. Throughout, the authors suggest, God is revealed through the story and calls us to participate in his drama.
