The greatest stories don’t just take us to faraway places, they tell us about ourselves and world. Often this is far more effective than a direct approach. Look to the example of Nathan’s story in 2 Samuel 12; his story cut to David’s heart and revealed his hypocrisy. Likewise, in What is Biblical Theology?: A Guide to the Bible’s Story, Symbolism, and Patterns, James Hamilton wants to help us see the storyline of the Bible – the true story of our world – and thereby make sense of what God is doing in history and see our own place within it.
