This book answers foundational questions: Who wrote the Bible? What is its message? Why is it thought to be a “holy” book? How does one read and interpret it? Best of all, though, you'll broaden your vision of Jesus Christ, the focal point of Scripture. How? By better understanding the geographical, religious, and historical concerns that shaped the world in which he lived. You’ll see Jesus as never before: both as a man of his times and culture, and as the culmination of a divine providence that prepared the way for the ministry of the Messiah. Written by renowned preacher, writer, and apologist John Stott, this new, expanded edition includes questions at the beginning of each chapter to help you focus, new, up-to-date maps for the chapters on history and geography, and an index to help you speedily access areas of interest.

“If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to” (Page 58)

“Thirdly, they had an extraordinary inspiration of the Holy Spirit” (Page 169)

“The central doctrine of Isaiah’s theology was the sovereignty of God. His call to the prophetic office came to him in a vision of the Lord as king, reigning from an exalted throne. He believed that God was king of the nations and used them as instruments of his own purpose.” (Page 80)

“The half-century following Hezekiah’s death was a time of religious apostasy. His son Manasseh, an abject vassal of Assyria, adopted a policy of religious syncretism and reintroduced the abomination of Canaanite and Assyrian worship which Hezekiah had destroyed.” (Page 81)

“The other weapons which the devil wielded against the church were more subtle. Unable to crush it by external pressure, he tried to undermine it from within.” (Page 120)
