God’s EPIC Adventure uses a five-act-play model as a way of presenting Scripture as a full-length Story in order to assist the reader toward a better reading experience of Scripture’s text. The author presents the gluing themes of Covenant in the Old Testament and Kingdom of God in the New Testament as two ways of saying the same thing, namely that God has invaded this present evil age with his rule. The intended results of reading the Bible with its storyline is to learn the art of living into the Story that Scripture presents. Readers will find ways to use this book that they have never thought of before!
