The Story of Hope - Simplified Chinese Version
The Story of Hope contains a “shrinkable and expandable” (accordion-like) presentation, consisting of 40 pages, for telling or teaching the Bible’s big redemptive story in as few as fifteen minutes or as long as twenty or more hours. It is designed for evangelistic Bible studies, one-on-one or in small groups, but is also helpful in teaching God’s redemptive plan to believers.
Forty strategically selected Bible events, twenty from the Old Testament and twenty from the New Testament, comprise this version of The Story of Hope. Each event is beautifully visualized. A set of evangelism-focused Bible study questions is included in the material for each event. The study book also includes colorful maps of the Bible lands, highlighting where the events occurred, as well as a very informative visual of the Old Testament’s tabernacle in the wilderness. The Chronological Bridge (ChronoBridge) to Life, which follows the study of the redemptive story, summaries eight essential “eternal life or death truths” that emerge from the Bible’s story of hope.
