Bruce Green. The Thrill of Hope: A Commentary on Revelation . Bowie, Texas: Start2Finish Publishing, 2014. 222 pages. $12.99.

North, longtime professor of Bible at Oklahoma Christian University, presents an overview of the Bible’s story of God’s reconciliation to man. 

Each chapter includes a hymn and memory verse. Maps, timelines and photos appear throughout the book. Ten simple drawings help readers internalize the story of the Bible, to share it with others. A series of video sermons is forthcoming.
