    The Drama of Scripture is one of the best books I have read in a while Most Christians approach the Bible as a roadmap to life or a book on how to live their life when in reality it is a story about God A story about His creation, the fall, redemption through Jesus Christ, and ultimately the restoration of all things This book gives the reader a great overview of the Biblical Metanarrative I found the chapter on the intertestamental periods to be the most helpful It was excellent in showing why [...]

    The Drama of Scripture is a book that any follower of Christ needs to read Bartholomew and Goheen seek to open a whole new door for people that read the Bible and they do a great job at it They understand that seeking to read the Bible without a comprehensive understanding of the the overall narrative of Scripture leaves one confused and bewildered With this being the case, they set out to lay out God s story in six acts These include Act 1 God Establishes His Kingdom CreationAct 2 Rebellion in [...]

    This is a solid book that covers the story of Scripture The authors do an admirable job, structuring their telling around a Kingdom motif On the whole, this is a good book that digs below the surface of the biblical story a good place to go to understand the flow of Scripture with some depth My only concern is their lack of of emphasis on the anticipation of the Messiah in their Old Testament material Jesus saw himself as central to the message of the Law, Prophets, and Writings Luke 24 I think [...]

    A solid introduction to the grand narrative of Scripture This would be an excellent resource to educate lay people in churches While most of the material was not new to me at this point in my reading and education, the authors synthesized a lot of good scholarship and delivered it in an engaging manner.Finally, Bartholomew and Goheen take some time at the end of the book to look at the implications of understanding the story of the Bible Where does this leave us today They show that read the Bib [...]

    Drawing from N.T Wright s model of the five act structure, these two Redeemer University College professors lay out an easy to read view of the Kingdom of God throughout the Bible Act 1 God Establishes His Kingdom Creation Act 2 Rebellion in the Kingdom Fall Act 3 The King Choose Israel Redemption Initiated Interlude A Kingdom Story Waiting for an Ending The Intertestamental Period Act 4 The Coming of the King Redemption Accomplished Act 5 Spreading the News of the King The Mission of the Church [...]

    Absolutely brilliant I appreciated especially the interlude chapter, the intertestamental period The reflections for today at the end of the chapters is very helpful to see the links to our time, and the questions that follow further aid you to think about how you can live consistently to the biblical story The interpretations of certain events and symbols in the story is fantastic and ties the whole book and the biblical events together nicely.Definitely a book to refer to and an excellent aid [...]

    This is a really helpful book Best of its kind, I think, in helping the reader to understand the entire sweep of the biblical story towards the end of finding one s place in the story Most Christians read the bible only devotionally, if at all That s important to be sure but it also pretty much guarantees that one comes away with only bits and pieces and not the whole story That is a loss of great magnitude This book serves the church well in overcoming the loss of story that makes following Chr [...]

    This is an expansion of N.T Wright s 5 point model of the Biblical drama Bartholomew adds to it a Sixth Act The Return of the King This is a popularizing of Wright s 5 point model to be used in a classroom setting or Bible study Bartholomew has also provided many helpful resources for getting the most out of the book biblicaltheology about If you are unfamiliar with N.T Wright, or are looking for an introduction to Biblical Theology with some excellent resources, this book will be helpful.

    The title of the book itself sets the main premise of the book The Drama of Scripture Finding our Place in the Biblical Story points to the need for the individual to see the Bible as a unified story and not as a collection of independent books written over several hundred years The authors argue that the Bible presents a meta story of creation and points to the need for each individual to find his or her place in this narrative In this attempt the authors borrow the idea from N.T Wright, who is [...]

    The Drama of Scripture is based on the idea that the Bible is a narrative a story of how God has worked, and continues to work, throughout history Usually we will hear or read parts of that story without understanding or knowing how it connects to the whole narrative This book attempts to take all those stories and put it in the proper order to the main narrative So it starts at creation and follows the narrative of the bible along to the final book, Revelation On the way you read all the storie [...]

    The Drama of Scripture is a book thats main idea is to tie together the diverse stories, teachings, themes, and people of the Bible to present it as a complete picture of God s working with His creation The book separates the Bible into 6 acts They are as follows 1 God Establishes His kingdom, 2 Rebellion in the Kingdom, 3 The King Chooses Israel Redemption Initiated, Interlude A kingdom Story Waiting for an Ending The Intertestamental Period , 4 The Coming of the King Redemption Accomplished, 5 [...]

    Promises than what was delivered.The introduction and process were absolutely inspiring The thesis that the author put forward , finding our place in the biblical story, resonated deeply with me I was so anxious to see how the author developed the thesis I found that the book is incredibly high on narration and lacking in application it wasn t until the last two chapters that the application was really brought together with the narration Overall , this book was probably not written for me Someo [...]

    Awesome Would recommend.There s a bit in the last pages which I don t totally agree with though that we are not going to live a spiritual existence in heaven forever but here on earth Why then did Christ say in John 14 2 3, There are many rooms in my Father s house I would not tell you this if it were not true I am going there to prepare a place for you After I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back Then I will take you with me, so that you can be where I am.Surely He would have said, [...]

    A totally at least for me new perspective on Scripture The authors view of The Bible as one unified story in six acts is most enlightening and refreshing They also manage to avoid the covenantal vs dispensational theology disputes into which efforts such as this often devolve Well researched, well documented, and theologically sound.

    The sweep of this book is so incredible, and yet he pulled it off The theater of the Bible is hardly ever mentioned in church, but writer like Bartholomew and NT Wright have popularized biblical theology in our generation We should be grateful I highly recommended this to all of my friends, young and old.

    Fantastic primer for biblical redemptive history I found the OT section to be much enumerating, but that could be do to the fact I haven t read as much about the OT Would recommend this book to someone interested in understanding the general narrative of scripture.

    Frances
    I found this book easy to read and it gives a wonderful overview of the purpose of God in creation and the story of how he deals and has dealt with humans I read the second edition.

    Rob Markley
    Seems to be a revelation to some but perhaps only because they hadn t really read their bibles entirely Most of this is self evident and I didn t this book had much to contribute

    I read this book in college and recently picked up its revised second edition It s an excellent book that, as the subtitle states, is about helping Christians find their place in the biblical story.Every person lives by a worldview Michael Goheen and Craig Bartholomew explain how one s worldview impacts life A worldview not only describes the world for us, but also directs our life in the world It not only gives us a perspective on how the world is , but also acts as a guide for how the world ou [...]

    We are living in the greatest story ever told, God s story of love and His plan for redemption.This grand narrative is larger than us, but it includes us nonetheless The story is not about us, however, it is about the love of God in His son Jesus According to The Drama of Scripture, this story is broken into six main parts God s establishment of the kingdom in creation, rebellion of the kingdom in the fall of humanity, The King chooses Israel and redemption begins, the coming of The King, Jesus [...]

    In the preface of The Drama of Scripture Finding our Place in the Biblical Story, authors Bartholomew and Goheen, suggest that this book was birthed out of necessity Frustrated for want of a good introductory text for a Biblical Theology course, this book was their attempt to fill a void However, this should not deter either advanced readers or lay readers from picking up this book.Leaning heavily upon N.T Wright s five act structure of the Scriptures, the authors suggest that the Scriptures co [...]

    I am reviewing the UK adaptation.Read my full review here mydigitalseminary the dramBartholomew and Goheen should be commended for seeking to put the Bible together as a unified whole Too many in the church today only read the Bible piecemeal for a daily word , or neglect whole sections of the Bible or the Biblical storyline itself For such a difficult task, the authors do a very good job.By trying to trace the Biblical storyline in a small introductory book, things must be left out This is unav [...]

    I really liked this book The authors take you through the Bible in its redemptive story line in a clear and concise way I would say this is a combination of highlights from Far as the Curse is Found by Michael Williams, Newbigin s Household of God and Clowney s The Unfolding Mystery written with broad strokes in order for one to see the overall picture of the Bible as one grand narrative The details are missing so that the reader will return to the Bible for answers, I think They explain the lif [...]

    Ryan Robinson
    A very good book for its purpose, that is, a broad overview of the story of Scripture The authors succeed in painting a picture of how the Bible has a continuous story from start to finish of how God has interacted with his people in bringing about his Kingdom on Earth This is vitally important for any Christian to understand, I think, in order to resist the temptation of reducing the Bible to little bits with no overarching story.It unashamedly borrows heavily from N.T Wright s 5 Act Model, exc [...]

    Juan Reyes
    Bartholomew and Goheen set out in this book to summarise the biblical narrative from Genesis to Revelation After finishing this book one has a better grasp of the main story that runs through the Bible which is ultimately the story we find ourselves in This book is part of a series of books by the same authors 1 Living at the Crossroads An Introduction to Christian Worldview2 Christian Philosophy A Systematic and Narrative IntroductionI believe their goal is to draw out the implications of the b [...]

    The Bible is not just a collection of spiritual sayings from which Christians gather guidance for life Any individual verse or passage must be understood within the context of the book in which it is written But it is also important to see that the books themselves fit into an overall storyline as well Explaining this storyline is the purpose of this book It does this job well with three weaknesses First, it excludes coverage of OT poetry This is understandable in a book that covers the storylin [...]

    Nicole
    This is a WONDERFUL read It does a great job of explaining the Bible as a whole story It is easy to read the Bible in part and forget not take the whole of it into consideration I would recommend this book to anyone who desires a better understanding of Scriptures I found that I was pushing to read and to answer the question that was posed in the beginning regarding our place in the history of what God has done, is doing and is yet to do.There is an analogy that the authors used at the end of t [...]

    This is the introductory book to the Church I feel Pass by the self help mumbo jumbo and historical reads by Christians those who identify as such Go straight to this.

    Peter
    This is a good introductory to the story of the Bible It provides a coherent overview of the arch of the Biblical story The book was written as a textbook for an Intro to Bible course by two college professors and is geared towards those who have either grew up in the church and need a refresher like me and those actively pursuing Christianity.Personally, I enjoyed it as a an overview and a reminder of the theme of the Bible When I picked up the book, I was hoping for a weighty conversation abo [...]

    Steve
    The writing style was not electrifying in any sense although the authors did a great job of condensing much into every sentence which is a great skill while making it understandable I think thier is great value in books that tie the biblical story together as the bible has suffered so much fragmented reading in the 20th century in particular that to graspists unity and progression as an overall narrative is invaluable for a faith to grasp Gods plans and purposes When Christians grasp that they i [...]
