Road to Redemption: Tracing God’s Rescue Plan Through His Mission People
Have you ever tried to read the Bible straight through? You may have run out of gas by Leviticus or been bewildered by the prophetic writings of Daniel. Did you puzzle over the meaning of the Psalms or sigh with relief when you hit the Gospels? Could you disentangle the Apostle Paul’s letters or decipher the mesmerizing imagery in Revelation? The good news is that the Bible is easier to understand when it is viewed as an overarching drama, from Genesis to Revelation. Max Sturge’s Road to Redemption: Tracing God’s Rescue Plan Through His Mission People is a primer that deftly guides readers through God’s mission story of redeeming fallen humanity, first through Israel and then through Jesus and the birth of the church. In the pages of Scripture, we see our own brokenness and need for God’s saving grace and experience the magnificent sweep of salvation history from creation to new creation.
There are occasions when you read something and you say, “I wish I had written that.” Road to Redemption convicted me again of the truth of Scripture, convinced me even more regarding God’s longing to rescue a broken world, and compelled me to do my part in that global mission.—General Brian Peddle, International Leader of The Salvation Army
Road to Redemption is an excellent study guide, which meets an important need in the church. A wonderful piece of work.—Dr. Yau Man Siew, Tyndale Seminary, Toronto
