Bible Savvy: Epic (The Storyline of the Bible) - Jim Nicodem

To many people, the Bible is a series of incongruous and confusing stories. It jumps from one person or place to the next leaving the reader scrambling to keep up and make sense of it all. That’s a tall task. Epic provides a big picture view of the Bible to explain how its individual pieces fit together. Is it really possible that the Bible’s collection of 66 books actually has a single storyline? Yes! The theme of that storyline is redemption, and Epic traces it from Genesis to Revelation.

Bible Savvy: Walk (How to Apply the Bible to Your Life) - Jim Nicodem

How do we draw practical applications from the Bible? Reading the Bible should be like gazing into a mirror—we should look for a true reflection of ourselves and note the changes that need to be made in our lives. But how is this done? Pastor Jim Nicodem encourages us in this difficult but vitally important challenge. Using the COMA method (Context, Observation, Message, Application), he offers helpful and understandable instruction on how a Christian can learn to “walk” what the Bible teaches as we go through life.
