It Began with a Promise
Demystifying Biblical Narratives for Teachers

Richard Olson

An essential and accessible guide to the Bible perfect for those seeking a deeper understanding of the Scriptures.

For those entrusted with teaching the Bible the task can often seem daunting. At first glance the many stories and narratives of the Scriptures appear to have little to do with our own lives. Moreover, our own understanding of the Bible is often limited: the history, culture and world of the Bible seem complex and intimidating to us.

Yet the stories of the Bible have much greater relevance to our own experiences than what we may initially believe. Long-time educator Richard Olson leads us on a journey through the great biblical stories and connects them to our lives. His accessible and engaging presentation of the Bible helps us explore the core biblical narratives and understand their meaning more fully. In discovering our own connection to the biblical stories, we are empowered in our own teaching of these narratives with our students.

With easy-to-understand explanations, narrative outlines and user-friendly guidelines, readers will gain greater insight into and a fuller appreciation of the Bible. Teachers, religious educators, and even parents will use this book as a resource for their own reflections and as a helpful reference for sharing the Scriptures with youth for years to come.
