a hope-filled look at what God’s ultimate plan is and has been from the very beginning
Vancouver, WA (PRWEB) January 29, 2018
In his new book One Book One Story, ($14.99, paperback, 9781545604809; $7.99, e-book, 9781545604816) David W. Edwards traces the common theme of the Bible beginning with Genesis. Each chapter tells a part of the story as it develops, fitting together the one main story that is at the heart of God’s Word. Edwards helps readers understand the story of the Bible, which he asserts changes the way we understand other issues. The second half of the book is comprised of essays that examine these issues, such as Christmas, baptism, Jesus’ temptation, the second coming, and more.
“Most of us have understood the Bible as a library of mostly unconnected books. I have come to understand that the Bible tells one coherent story, and that each of the various parts either add to or retell the story in miniature,” states the author. “It really is a hope-filled look at what God’s ultimate plan is and has been from the very beginning. I believe the Church has lost its way, partly because of a scattered approach to the Bible. We don’t present a coherent argument to the world, focusing on ‘bumper-sticker’ theology. That means that we’ve largely lost credibility. Recapturing an integrated understanding of the Bible, and seeing the hope-filled message of redemption, restoration, and re-creation should help us truly be light in a dark world.”
David W. Edwards earned a BA in Religion from Northwest Nazarene University (Nampa, Idaho), and an MA in Theology from Manchester (UK) University. He has been a pastor for thirty-six years and lives in Vancouver, Washington, with his wife of forty years.
