Title: A Visual Theology Guide to the Bible: Seeking and Knowing God’s Word

Author: Tim Challies and Josh Byers with Joey Schwartz

Publication Date: March 26, 2019

Format: Paperback

Length: 208 pages

OVERVIEW

While the Bible is full of interesting ideas, some people may struggle to study it because it seems so dense. This book provides a visually-oriented guide to the material. The authors’ text overviews why the Bible can be trusted, how to study the Bible and its major themes. Graphs, charts and other illustrations work alongside the text to describe the authors’ concepts in a different format.

While many writers have covered the same ideas this book describes, none of them have taken this approach. The visual approach helps in unexpected ways, because certain theological ideas sound dry when written as sentences on a page. By creating illustrations for those ideas, the book gives those concepts new weight and reaches a new audience.
