Get this little book if you’ve ever asked the question, “What’s the Bible all about, anyway?!”  Smith does a great job in laying out the basic structure of the Old and new Testaments.  From the intro:

“Some people have the idea that God had a marvelous plan for the world but that things went terribly wrong and God had to come up with a costly initiative to sort out the mess.  This is not what the Bible teaches.”

He then lays out what the Bible does teach with the following outline:

God makes a promise: The Story of the Old Testament:

  • Creation
  • Destruction
  • Election
  • Redemption
  • Dominion
  • Correction
  • Restoration

Christ fulfills the Promise: The Story of the Gospels

  • Incarnation
  • Temptation
  • Rejection
  • Transfiguration
  • Crucifixion
  • Resurrection
  • Ascension

The Church Communicates the Promise: The Story of the Acts

The Holy Spirit Delivers the Promise: The Story of the New Testament Letters

  • Regeneration: You have New Life
  • Union: You are in Christ
  • Justification: You are declared righteous
  • Adoption: you are loved
  • Sanctification: You will be holy
  • Glorification: You will reflect Christ’s glory
  • Consummation: We will see God

This booklet is great personal devotional reading, is great reading around the dinner table to teach and train our families and would even make a great study for a Sunday School class or Bible study at Church.  Order The Plan from WTS Bookstore for only $2.99 today.  You won’t be disappointed.
