This Introduction is about redemption. It explores the broad spectrum of meanings attached to redemption in the Bible. The author demonstrates how the Bible’s story about God actually answers our life’s questions. The pattern of creation, fall, and redemption is followed in a brief survey of God’s story with man. In a later section on redemption as renewal, the author indicates how God’s story culminates in a new creation.
