The single most popular book in the world–the Bible–was written over many centuries by many different authors, each with a unique literary style. The many stories within its pages continue to grip the hearts of readers and introduce them to their Creator. However, the Bible is more than just a book about events in history: it’s a unified story.

The Unfolding Grace Study Guide serves as an onramp to this unified story by helping readers grasp the central message of redemption that runs from Genesis through Revelation. Designed to be used in conjunction with Unfolding Grace, each lesson–with a short summary paragraph and reflection questions–promotes discussion, fosters spiritual growth, and enriches understanding of the Bible, making this ideal for small-group study, Sunday school class, or for individual use. Printed on thick paper and featuring a lay-flat binding optimized for note taking, the Unfolding Grace Study Guide is a great resource for anyone looking for an interactive exploration of the storyline of Scripture.

“The 40 guided readings from scripture paired together with their companion study guide make Unfolding Grace one of the very best tools for introducing the overarching storyline of Redemptive History.”

Josiah Pettit

Director, Westminster Bookstore

“Each turning of the page of this beautiful book draws its readers ever-deeper into the breathtaking flow of the Bible’s epic story of redemption where the reward is, in Jesus’s words, ‘grace upon grace.’ Here the story of grace is rendered transparent by the dignified precision of the English Standard Version, the fine introductions by Drew Hunter, and the exquisite illustrations and headers of German artist Peter Voth. This book will surely be used to introduce many readers to ‘the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.’ Read it, and give it!”

R. Kent Hughes

Senior Pastor Emeritus, College Church, Wheaton, Illinois

“The Bible contains the one narrative that serves as the context for every other narrative in human history. Unfolding Grace puts on full display this overarching narrative of the Bible in the context of the gospel of God’s grace in Jesus Christ. This guided reading will remind and reassure Christians that there is a plan and a purpose for our history that will culminate in the grand restoration of all things.”

Miles V. Van Pelt

Alan Belcher Jr. Professor of Old Testament and Biblical Languages, Reformed Theological Seminary

“With eye-catching illustrations, guided insight, and a helpful narrative structure, Unfolding Grace and the Unfolding Grace Study Guide act as gentle and wise companions to anyone who wants to read through Scripture with purpose and clarity. I highly recommend this beautiful resource.”
