In Reading the Bible as a Complete Story Chip Bennett and Warren Gage teach that the Bible’s sixty-six book collection is ultimately the profound work of a divine author and tells one story with Jesus as the central theme. Drs. Bennett and Gage argue that such a reading of the Bible is consistent with the context of other Hellenistic literature, which leads us to understand Scripture as a beautiful, poetic comedy that ends in a divine marriage between Christ and His bride, the church. Such an Alexandrian reading of the Bible does not contradict but rather complements a traditional historical-grammatical hermeneutic, providing a more holistic reading of Scripture and opening up entirely new vistas in understanding the Bible.
