The Bible (in summary)

My “elevator speech” explanation of the Bible goes something like this:

The Bible is the story of how God gathers his people together and prepares them to be with him in his Glory forever.

That’s painting with a massive brush, to be sure. But overall, that’s what the scriptures are trying to explain to us.

Daily Prayer


You brought me into life as if into an enchanted paradise. We have seen the sky like a chalice of deepest blue, and listened to the soothing murmur of the forest and melodious music of the streams. It is a pleasure to be your guest. Glory to You, O God, from age to age!

Daily Prayer


O Lord, do not rebuke me in your wrath, nor chasten me in your hot displeasure! I am troubled, I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long. In you, O Lord, do I hope; you will hear, O Lord my God.
