Could you distill the message of the Bible down to 16 words?
Chris Bruno attempted to do just that in his 2017 book, The Whole Message of the Bible in 16 Words.
This book is a follow-up from his earlier book, The Whole Story of the Bible in 16 Verses (2015), where he highlighted the importance of seeing the Bible as one complete story.
In reality, Bruno is attempting to introduce Biblical Theology with both of his books. 16 Words shows how both the Old and New Testaments come together to declare a single unified message.
Our friend, another Chris, Chris Brauns, endorses the book by writing,
Here is an ideal resource for either personal Bible study or for small-group curriculum. Bruno’s concise and readable explanation of sixteen biblical words or concepts provides a lens through which we can see the overall message of the Bible with greater precision.
I encourage you to add Chris Bruno’s The Wole Message of the Bible in 16 Words to your reading list.
