Tim Challies (the writer) and Josh Byers (the designer) have teamed up to produce a truly unique introduction to theology and guide to living the Christian life. This is show-and-tell at its finest. Most theology books merely convey what we are to believe, but this one uses creative and beautiful design to capture and portray these crucial truths. I know of nothing else quite like it, and I trust that God will use it to help his people see and celebrate reality in a new way. -- Justin Taylor, , managing editor of The ESV Study Bible and coauthor of The Final Days of Jesus You've probably seen (or used) a gospel presentation drawn on a whiteboard or a napkin. It's remarkable how God gives us spiritual insight when we behold truths about him with our eyes. With engaging graphics and descriptions of the Christian faith, Tim Challies and Josh Byers have done something genuinely unique in Visual Theology. See for yourself! -- Gloria Furman, , author of Treasuring Christ When Your Hands Are Full and The Pastor's Wife My mind is blown. Tim Challies and Josh Byers marry rock-ribbed Reformational theology with breathtaking presentations. The effect is something like following John Knox into the Matrix. In this diaphanous world, we encounter no fiction, but very reality itself --- God-reality --- and we are transformed. -- Owen Strachan, , associate professor of Christian theology at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary A delightful read. It combines wise knowledge of sound theology with a readable, inviting style. -- Wayne Grudem, , professor and author of the bestselling Systematic Theology A resource that will be of immense help to believers in our visual age. -- Nancy Leigh DeMoss, , author and Revive Our Hearts radio host This is simple yet profound, clever without being flashy. Helpful and practical. Speaking as a person who avoids diagrams and graphs at all costs, I found the infographics in this book to be illuminating. This cheeky little number is a class act. -- Mez McConnell, , pastor of Niddrie Community Church, Edinburgh, and director of 20schemes
