The Bible: A Story that Makes Sense of Life [9781529327014]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

'Honest, revealing insight into the bestselling book of all time.'
Bear Grylls

'A stimulating and accessible survey of history's most influential book.'
Tom Holland, historian and author of Dominion

'Personal and profound; informative and practical. If you want to experience the Bible as a rich source of guidance and hope, this book is for you.'
Simon Thomas, former Sky Sports and Blue Peter presenter

When we make sense of the Bible, the Bible makes sense of us.

The political, social and cultural upheaval of our times can leave us feeling bewildered and wondering where to turn for trustworthy guidance. As unlikely as it may seem, could the Bible provide ancient wisdom that helps us flourish today?

Join Andrew Ollerton as he explores the storyline of Scripture, connecting six major biblical events with six definitive human needs: for meaning, freedom, peace, community, love and for an ultimate home. In short, digestible chapters, Andrew reveals how the Bible story makes sense of our human story.

Discover for yourself a limitless source of guidance and hope in the face of so much uncertainty.

Underpinned by a depth of scholarship, the book is non-technical in style, making it accessible for the widest possible readership - including Christians and seekers interested in the Bible. The book will also provide a model for Bible communicators and church leaders wishing to engage more deeply with the relevance of the Bible in our cultural moment.

Contains discussion questions for small groups, as well as suggested Bible readings and reflection questions to accompany each chapter. The structure of the book makes it ideal to read as a Lent course for 2021.

AUTHOR: Dr Andrew Ollerton is a theologian, pastor and popular communicator. He works with Bible Society and developed The Bible Course, an eight-session guide to the big story of the Bible for small groups. Andrew is married to Charlotte and they have three kids, two fish, a snake and a dog. Follow Andrew on Twitter @AndyOllerton, on Instagram @andyollerton and on Facebook @AndrewOllerton
