The biblical story of Israel, in its election, sin, exile, and restoration, is a finely articulated drama—the universal story of the glory and the plight of humanity and creation. And the story of Jesus, who was born from the womb of Israel as its Messiah and as the true seed of Abraham, provides the redemptive solution to the plight of both Israel and the world.

This book by C. Marvin Pate, J. Scott Duvall, J. Daniel Hays, Randolph E. Richards, W. Dennis Tucker Jr., and Preben Vang explores the unitive theme of the story of Israel from Genesis to Revelation. Probing each section of Scripture—from the Pentateuch, Psalms, and Prophets to the Gospels, Epistles, and Apocalypse—the authors bring the contours of this story to light. From close-up examinations of key texts to panoramic shots of the biblical terrain, The Story of Israel unfolds an intriguing and compelling perspective on biblical theology. And with its features of recommended readings and study questions, it is a textbook suitable for use in the classroom and individual study.
