Tom Nelson: The Bookends of the Bible

Genesis 1-2 and Revelation 21-22 are necessary to understanding God's purpose for our lives, and these "bookends" help narrow the "Sunday to Monday Gap."

Tom Nelson discusses the importance of the "bookends" of the Bible (Genesis 1-2 and Revelation 21-22) in lending a richness to the overall story of the Bible. When we don't acknowledge the bookends, the Bible becomes singularly focused on soul and eternity. With the inclusion of the bookends, the narrative speaks not only to soul and eternity, but also to the work and mission of our everyday lives.
