The Story of a Kingdom:
A Simple Explanation of the Bible

Jonathan Gibson

Blurb Review by Melvin Tinker


In The Story of a Kingdom (SOK) Jonathan Gibson explains the Bible in a simple and easy-to-understand format. Though written primarily for international students, this book is suitable for new Christians and even young people who want to get a grasp of the Bible's big story. As the title explains it follows the development of God's Kingdom through the main turning points of the Bible. Working with a definition of God's Kingdom — 'God's people, living in God's place, under God's rule and blessing' — the author shows how the Old Testament leads up to Jesus and His Kingdom. Each chapter has objectives and key teaching points for the teacher, as well as connections to other parts of the Bible story. Most chapters are accompanied with a diagram that complements the story, and conclude with some questions for personal or group reflection. This is a study guide for those who wish to understand the world's bestseller, especially for those with English as a second language.
