‘The Good, the Bad, the New, and the Perfect’, by Bernard Bell. A brief overview of the Bible. Available free online as a series of 4 sermons in both audio and PDF format HERE.
Bernard Bell writes: “Psychologists know that a sense of purpose is essential to emotional and psychological health. We look for a meta-narrative, an overarching story that makes sense of all of the little stories of our lives. Fragmented by the loose strands of our lives, we yearn for a sense of ending that ties everything together.”
We can only really make sense of our individual lives in the context of God’s great Story, the Story we read in the Bible. Bernard Bell brilliantly captures this overarching story in four short studies that combine faithfulness to the Bible’s narrative, spiritual insight and pastoral wisdom. The studies are entitled ‘This is my Father’s world’, ‘Adam, where are you?’, ‘Jesus Christ, Son of David, Son of Abraham’, and ‘The end of the beginning’.
