What you’ll hear in this episode

  • Why it’s important that Christians see the Bible as a puzzle, not a mosaic.
  • The importance of learning to read the Bible in its close, continuing, and complete or canonical context.
  • Wellum’s thoughts on the resurgence of biblical theology in the past decade.
  • How understanding the storyline of the Scripture helps Christians learn to read the Old Testament and the Bible better.
  • Wellum’s advice as readers read the Word of God themselves daily in light of the storyline of Scripture.
  • How Pastors and ministry leaders can address the growing problem of biblical illiteracy in American evangelicalism0
