Visual Theology: Seeing and Understanding the Truth About God, a review


I was very curious about this book, written by a favorite Blogger, Tim Challies with Josh Byers.  I'm a visual person with notes and such pinned on bulletin boards all over the house so the thought of combining theology with the visual was intriguing.

This is a truly unique book!  Full of basic but not fluffy theology that every Christian should know but written in short easy to understand language mixed in with colorful charts and illustrations.

The book is divided by:

Grow Close to Christ
Gospel
Identity
Relationship

Understand the Work of Christ
Drama
Doctrine

Become Like Christ
Putting Off
Putting On

Live for Christ
Vocation
Relationships
Stewardship

While written from a Reformed perspective, there was nothing in the book that would make it only for that denomination. I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting a better understand of the basic theology every Christian should understand.  But it would be especially good to give to young people in their late teens and twenties. Perfect for homeschoolers!

I am a word person but this is one book where I have to say you have to see it to realize how unique... in a very good way... it brings an understanding of theology to the reader.

This book was provided by the publisher for the sake of review but the opinions are my own.

I'm going to look for it at our homeschool convention next month! Sounds like a book right up our alley!
