Biblical Commentary Encourages Awareness of God's Salvation Plan
From Genesis to Revelation, "Rapid Insights Bible Survey" is about all the great themes of the Bible, especially God's profound willingness to be merciful and forgiving irrespective of the depth of man's offenses against him. Furthermore, Jones explains that though the themes of the Bible are consistent throughout, God uses different ways in an attempt to bring his loved ones back to himself.
"We will see ourselves in so many of the characters of the Bible. Their story connects with our story. Readers will grasp how God is in hot pursuit of them and loves them no matter what. Applications can easily be made to our own lives," says Jones, on his book's potential appeal to readers.
With the book, Jones hopes that readers will develop a greater awareness of God's consistent and unchangeable nature and his actions as revealed through each book of the Bible. He also prays that readers may experience God's unconditional love, mercy, grace, peace and salvation in a more profound way.
