Originally delivered as sermons by pastor Mark Dever at Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, DC, these three studies are now available in one volume. Dever guides readers to take a step back and look at the Bible from a broader perspective. As we notice new features of an object when viewed from a distance, so too the major themes of Scripture become more apparent when we take in the Bible as a whole. This book considers the central messages of the Bible as seen in the promises of God.
Dever examines the general narrative of God’s Word to answer the question, “What does God wants of us anyway?” Readers looking for a panoramic view of Scripture will be reminded of the faithful, persistent love of God and find themselves drawn into a broader, but deeper, understanding of the maker and keeper of promises.

Pastor Mark Dever has provided a most unusual book. Instead of teaching his people the usual lessons from the Bible, Dever has taught his people about the Bible so that they can read it effectively for themselves, which is a great idea.

In this fantastic little book, Dever shows us what it means to say that Jesus Christ is the point of the Bible. He offers us a breathtaking, panoramic view of Scripture. Since the message of the Bible is so important, and since Dever has captured that message so succinctly, I’ll give this book away again and again—both to Christians eager to get a sense of the whole and to seekers wondering just what the Bible is all about.
