About the Book

This book is divided into two parts. The first part is a summary of the story the Bible that tells from creation through the human rebellion and God’s remedy in Jesus’s death and resurrection to the consummation and the worldview it reveals. The second part is an exposition of how we should live out our vocation in response to the biblical story and its worldview. The author explains that we need to rely on the Holy Spirit to reveal our union with Christ in his death and resurrection. This enables us to practice the virtues that lead to holiness, which is the foundation of our vocation as kings and priests of God.
