All of us think about God and draw conclusions about him. In other words, we all do theology. So how do we do theology well? We do theology well by starting with how God has revealed himself. And God has revealed himself in a “grand metanarrative.” Let Tony Twist and Mihai Malancea guide you step by step through this grand story God has given you and into which he invites you. When you place yourself within God’s metanarrative, you will know who God is, where you come from, who you are, and where you are going. And that’s the perfect place to begin doing theology.

Tony Twist and Mihai Malancea explain in simple terms the entire plot of the Bible. With this you can do the work God called you to: making disciples.
