A Bible Study on the Bible's Story

Have you ever wondered what Exodus has to do with Ephesians? Wanted to study your Bible but didn’t know where to begin? Thought of the Bible as just a set of rules to be followed?
If so, this study was written for you!
The Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, is a beautiful, epic, and cohesive story. It is the story of how our eternal God is on a grand mission to redeem and restore his rebellious and wayward children. But it is not a story meant to merely inform us. The story itself is meant to transform us and invite us to participate in this glorious redemption of all things!
from Christian Discipleship Ministries
“From Garden to Glory takes the reader on a journey from Genesis to Revelation. Each lesson focuses on a few passages with depth, while explaining the theological concepts that weave the whole of God’s Story together. Courtney Doctor’s insightful and humorous commentaries will motivate both beginners and lifelong students of Scripture to dig deeper into the biblical texts. Her knowledge of Scripture and depth of theological study provide the reader keys to better understand what they read in the Bible. This is a unique and wonderful study; I’ve never seen curriculum like it. What a gift to the church!”

“I don’t know of another book quite like this one. In over 35 years of ministry, I’ve read scores of books about understanding the Bible from various perspectives, but Courtney gives us a unique work which provides the essentials for understanding the Bible as one glorious, cohesive story of redemption. It is biblical. It is theological. It is devotional, and it is delightful. A treasure to all who want to know God through His Word, this book is an invaluable tool that will help you make the Bible 'your own' and teach others how to do it, too.”

If you want to understand The Story of the Bible, then From Garden to Glory is the Bible study for you.”
Reclaiming the Truth of Who We Are in Christ
Author of Even Better Than Eden
Who am I? It's a question we all ask ourselves at some point.Depending on the season we focus our identity on our job performance, marital status, personality type, or social network, among other options.
However, there's a larger question to consider. Who does the Bible tell me I am in Christ?
Join Courtney and other Christian authors (including Melissa Kruger,
Jen Wilkin, Hannah Anderson,
Trillia Newbell, and Jen Pollock Michel) to explore how knowing who we are in Christ changes every aspect of our lives.
