For Christians, the Bible is not only the New Testament, but the Old Testament as well.  But how do you find your way in such a big book?  This presentation will examine the Christian Bible and follow its steady forward movement from Genesis to Jesus in the Gospels, while illustrating how a system of cross-references keeps readers on track.
