There is no book like the Bible, for the Bible alone reveals the way to live blessedly for ever. It contains our Maker’s instructions for a truly happy life, a happy death and a happy eternity. It is the only sure guide to how we may ‘glorify God and enjoy Him for ever’, and so fulfil our chief end. We thus ignore the Bible – the written Word of God – at our peril.
The Bible though is a vast book of sixty six books. It can seem a little overwhelming. That is where this book comes in. It is designed to give you an overview of the Bible, enabling you to grasp its main message, and see where the most significant parts and themes fit and relate to the whole. Interestingly, the Bible both begins and ends in a garden. In this book, we will travel from one end of the Bible to the other, beginning in the Garden of Eden and ending in the glorious Garden City of the New Jerusalem, while viewing some of the main milestones in-between.
