For all its peculiarities and unevenness, the Bible has a simple story. God made man. Man rejected God. God won’t give up until He wins man back. God returns man to his original plan. Here is the larger story in four words – Creation, Fall, Redemption, Restoration. Colson, Walters, and others argue this point so well and the Bible demonstrates it. When you encompass the mass of biblical material, even though there are several smaller stories, the larger story line that emerges is Creation, Fall, Redemption, and Restoration – four dramatic scenes.
