Derke P. Bergsma, Redemption: The Triumph of God's Great Plan (1973).
Bergsma describes his purpose: “The guiding objective of this study is to understand each major part of the Bible in its relationship to the grand design of God’s determination to save the world. It presents the ‘big picture,’ focusing especially upon Jesus Christ in whom the entire Scripture finds its unity. It moves from Genesis to Revelation, tracing the unfolding pattern which reveals God’s love for a lost world and His determination to save it. It is organized along the lines of Biblical Epochs which are identifiable historical segments of the history of redemption.” At 134 pages, this book is a short introduction to “Biblical Theology,” helping the student to understand God’s Word as “a whole” and leading to deeper study pertaining to law.
