Homers story is paired with a Readers Guide to more stories in the Old Testament. Those stories reveal God as the creator of the universe and as the author of an audacious plan for redemption and reconciliation.
Arranged chronologically, the guide is swept along by the current of the Old Testament narrative, all the way to the advent of the Messiah. As that narrative flows into the New Testament, Old and New Testament connections are clearly presented.
So grab your Bible and an imaginary camera, and join Homer as we dive into the Bible.
