The second - thoroughly updated and revised - edition of a bestselling textbook that surveys the grand narrative of the Bible, demonstrating how the biblical story forms the foundation of a Christian worldview. The Drama of Scripture provides an engaging overview of the storyline and theology of the Bible. The authors work their way through the Bible as a drama with six acts - creation, sin, Israel, Jesus, mission and new creation. Their study provides an introduction to the Bible and a commentary on important passages, while helping the reader relate their story to the Bible story at each point.

Press Reviews

· I am delighted to see solid scholarship made easily accessible in this splendid fashion.


- Tom Wright

Every once in a while a book comes along that immediately meets a real need. This is one of those books . . .

- Canadian Evangelical Review

Bartholomew and Goheen have produced a clear and theologically sensitive account of the Bible that is perfect for college students or adult Bible study groups.

- Christopher Seitz, Senior Research Professor Wycliffe College, University of Toronto

"The promising kernel of this book, however, offers a prospectus for New Testament theology that supporters will acclaim as ground-breaking, and dissenters should acknowledge as worth arguing over rather than merely dismissing."

- A. K. M. Adam

"Many Christians lack a grasp of the overall pattern of God's revelation in Scripture and so have little idea how the different books of the Bible fit into this 'big picture'. Bartholomew and Goheen's book will serve to remedy that defect.

- David McKay
