Critique By trying to trace the Biblical storyline in a small introductory book, things must be left out. This is unavoidable so grace and understanding must be shown to any who take on such a task.

Misplaced Emphasis Here are a few areas where I see misplaced emphases. The seriousness of these depends on how one sees their significance. Environmental implications in Genesis are given more space than the relationship between Adam and Eve, and the differences in their roles are unexplored.

Book Review: The Drama of Scripture, 2E (Bartholomew and Goheen) Very few books are must reads, especially for busy, sleep-deprived, tired-of-reading-books-for-class college students (or their even more taxed cousins, the grad student).
