Want a crash course in Biblical Theology?
Are you sure?
It might be easier than you think. 4 years of Bible College, followed by another 2 – 3 years at Seminary? Yeah, maybe. What if I told you, all you need to do is get your head around what happened in Genesis 1? Genesis 1 unlocks the Bible – this is the thesis of Mike Bull’s Bible Matrix. (It’s also on Kindle)
It’s a small book that will take only a few days to read, or weeks, depending on your reading pace. What Mike draws out, very well, is that there is a recurring pattern and theme throughout scripture. When you identify this pattern – it ties all the pieces together. Here’s my big thing with this book: If you read it, you will want to read your Bible more often and more thoroughly. That alone is enough of a recommendation – regardless of whether I agree in entirety with all of Mike’s conclusions and implications, he has given me a tool (that I use often!) that encourages me to read my bible and, hopefully, lead others to do the same.
There are lots of books out there that purport to give the big picture in 40 days and so on. Why is this one any different? Below is a video comment by a teacher, followed by a 12 year kid who explains what he learnt about the days of creation from reading Bible Matrix. NB: the kid starts talking at 4:18
