I have always appreciated and respected Duvall’s and Hays’ love for both the study and application of the Scriptures. Connecting words and pictures with God’s redemptive story within its historical context is a priceless tool for both those studying and those teaching the Scriptures. This incredible resource will ignite both passion and knowledge for any student of the Scriptures. It will enable the reader to grasp God’s Word in a more powerful, meaningful way, and it will offer practical insights and visuals that make the Scriptures come alive.
