1) Dedication
2) Introduction Everything has to start somewhere. In this work, we will begin by assuming the validity of reason (logic) and the truthfulness of Scripture and see where that gets us.
3) The Scope and Overall Structure of ScriptureIf my beliefs are grounded in Scripture, then we must answer the question: what is Scripture?
4) The Order of ScriptureGod could have given mankind the entire Bible the instant Adam was evicted from the Garden. Instead, He gave it over thousands of years. Is there perhaps a reason for this?
5) The Outpouring of ScriptureIf we imagine ourselves as a hypothetical time traveler moving through history with only the knowledge the Bible gives us, what would we know and when would we know it?
6) The Book of JobWe begin a more in-depth view of the Bible, beginning with the book of Job: God's first impression to mankind. And boy is it a doozy.
7) Creation to NoahWe begin to examine Genesis, starting with the creation account and extending through to Noah and the Flood.
8) AbrahamAs we continue in Genesis, we take a deep look at Abraham, a man central to Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. What do we learn about God through His interactions with this patriarch?
9) IsaacAfter Abraham, God renewed His covenant with Isaac. But in many ways, Isaac was not as important to Biblical history as his wife was. And the story of how Isaac and Rebekah met perfectly demonstrates compatibilism.
10) JacobA look at Jacob, the son of Isaac, who would become the founder of the nation of Israel.
11) JosephThe story of Joseph shows us both more evidence of compatibilism and how intent matters in determining if an action is good or evil such that God can determine an evil action without Himself being evil.
