Let's Know the Bible Series

Want to expand your understanding of the Bible? Do you want to understand what God is doing? The book, God’s Big Picture: An Overview of God’s Developing Story answers those two questions and more.

Herbert W. Bateman first traces God’s plan that begins in Genesis and ends in Revelation. Timothy D. Sprankel then examines God’s Past Story with an overview of Genesis and 1 & 2 Samuel. Bateman surveys God’s current story in Matthew and Romans. Aaron C. Peer concludes the book with a look at God’s future story as presented in Revelation.

God’s Big Picture provides both notes and links to four corresponding videos from the 2014 Let’s Know the Bible conference. Let’s Know the Bible conferences exist to provide Bible teaching by leading Christian thinkers and local pastors for church leaders, churchgoers, and others so that people might learn more about God and the Bible and how to navigate everyday life more intentionally.   Buy on Amazon



eBooks for Translating the New Testament 

Designed as a translational guide, these books
 isolate independent and dependent clauses, provide tips for translating New Testament letters, and share exegetical explanations to assist in the translation of biblical letters. Each book divides into three parts. First, an introduction prepares the reader for translating the letters. Second, letters are divided into manageable units of thought for translation purposes while providing contextual orientation for each unit. Finally, an answer key is provided with detailed exegetical explanations about each author’s translations of the text.

Each book interacts with lexicons, grammars, and English translations in order to orient the translator to the challenges that come with translating New Testament letters. Yet the contextual orientation and clausal outlines enable the translator to trace the author’s flow of thought in a manner that will be helpful for teaching and preaching purposes.
