Overview

The Wesleyan Biblical Studies Collection presents five volumes that focus on bringing clarity to the Old and New Testaments, as well as key biblical principles and figures. This collection brings deeper understanding to the Old and New Testaments and their principles.

God’s Story Revealed and God’s Plan Fulfilled take readers through each book of the Bible, providing concise introductions and overviews, as well as key information on the historical and cultural contexts of each book. These two volumes not only bring readers a basic understanding to the entire Bible, but also illustrate the importance each book has in contemporary Christian living. In addition to these volumes, Making Sense of God’s Word addresses much-debated biblical principles and provides practical help to the average Christian on how to sort through issues of context, genre, and theories of interpretation to properly interpret the Word of God.

The Wesleyan Biblical Studies Collection (5 vols.) also analyzes what it means to be content through the lessons of the Beatitudes in The Call to Contentment and brings new light to the Apostle Paul in Paul: the Messenger of Grace—who he was and what impact his ministry had. Loaded with information on each topic of study, this collection is perfect for Christians seeking an understanding of Scripture and its principles, impact, and relevance in the present day.

The Logos edition of these important titles gives you easy access to Scripture texts, along with a wealth of other resources in your digital library! Hovering over Scripture references links you instantly to the verse you’re looking for, and with passage guides, word studies, and a wealth of other tools from Logos, you can get into God’s Word like never before!
