The Bible Gets Easier to Understand:
Apparent contradictions plague many Bible students. The Plot demonstrates how hundreds of such contradictions disappear when the reader applies the big picture of the Bible to its details. Tunnel vision focuses so narrowly on a problem that the solution often lies just out of view. As the pastor of Denver Bible Church, Bob Enyart teaches Christians how to use the whole counsel of God to understand the plot of the Bible and solve biblical mysteries. (Missionaries in Costa Rica effectively use the Spanish translation, La Trama.)

second to the bible itself

This is the easiest to understand overview of the bible ever written.
It is amazing how easy to understand scripture becomes when you see the big picture. Every verse becomes clear in its meaning and you don't need to "spiritualize" everything to make it make sense.
Great book and I have given away more than 10 of them to help those who need to grow in their Christianity.
Opened my eyes!

Put away preconceived notions and be prepared to be wowed. I have always had questions that I could never find answers. A coworker recommended The Plot to me and now I can see the big picture when studying the Bible. One of the best books I have read on the Bible.
All I can say is wow! - fasten your seat belts!

This manuscript is for the frustrated pastor, bible student or anyone who is bugged by some seeming discrepancies in the bible. "The Plot" will show you what the scriptures actually mean what they say! It deals with ten of the most divided topics between well-meaning Christians and then explains why they are so divided! See if you have discussed or dealt with any of these subjects with other Christians in the following list: Can Believers can lose their salvation or not, Baptism is necessary for salvation or not, Believers must speak in tongues or not, God will answer prayers of faith or many good prayers go unanswered, Miracles and healing are assured or not, There is no pre-tribulation rapture or there is, Believers must keep the law or is it grace alone? Salvation by faith requires works or faith only not works, Believers must keep the Sabbath or not, Unclean foods are prohibited or all foods are clean! Ever deal with any of these issues? Now, just a fair warning, this is a long and exhaustive manuscript because it has to be. Bob attempts to unwind the biases and makes you face the scripture for what it says rather than trying to explain it away. As someone who has read the Holy Bible for over 30 years I have run into many problem texts that "The Plot" made clear and undeniable. You have to approach this book more as a step by step curriculum that will dismantle your preconceived ideas of what certain scriptures mean, then there's the unwinding of personal bias and embarrassment once he shows the passage that explains it all. I promise you, it will take time and a lot of thinking but it will lead you to a clearer path in understanding the bible, it's purpose, it's people and what God has planned for the body of Christ as well as the kingdom he has promised to the Jewish people. My thanks to Bob for this incredible work!
Nothing will give you a better understanding and overview of the bible than this.

Nothing will give you a better understanding and overview of the bible than this. We discovered this book years ago and it has truly saved us from much false and mis-guided teaching. A must for all who long to understand the scriptures.
What Biblical contradictions?

This book brings clarity to all of the difficult apparent contradictions of the Bible. It changed my outlook on so many scriptures that I had struggled with my whole life. This a must read for all Christians.

WOW... amazing book to aid in your understanding of the Bible.
A MUST READ TO ALL SEARCHING FOR THE TRUTH!!
Posted by Mike Harton on 20th Oct 2011
I started reading this book expecting to hear the opinion of yet another "Christian author" trying to sell their version of what they think about God's Word. Wow! It didn't take long for me to appreciate the concise and logical approach that Bob Enyart takes in explaining the overview of the Bible. Finally, I was able to easily tie up so many loose ends left from other Bible teachers through years and years of studying for the Truth. If there is one book you will read to help you better understand Biblical principles, it has to be the Plot by Bob Enyart. I highly recommend this book to everyone from all backgrounds and faiths.
The Plot is the single most helpful book I've ever read.

Bob Enyart's The Plot is the single most helpful book I've ever read on how to understand the Bible as a whole and rightly divide the Word. It is an exceptionally thorough, hermeneutically consistent book that lives up to it's intended goal. That being to show the reader how to understand how audience and context are critical in understanding what many consider "problem texts". Once Bob removed this one overlooked and essential to understand truth, the ignorance that had created a bottleneck in my mind, was removed. Now I can really appreciate God's redemptive plan and Bible study is MUCH more enjoyable when you can see "The Plot."
Great Great Resource

I've been a believer over 25 years, listener of BEL for about a year. I have learned more listening to Bob this past year than I had in probably over a decade previous.
If you like Bob's Theology Thursday broadcasts, The Plot will tie it all together in one resource. I believe Bob's systematic theology works better than any other I've studied. In addition, studying the Bible has never been so enjoyable!
To me, The Plot serves more as an overview of theology, (than of the Bible) based on the focus and chronology. For example, it assumes the reader has already been bogged down with poor theology rather than starting with a clean slate.
The large 325-page textbook could be consolidated into a more streamlined package with careful editing. But the content is excellent.
Couldn't recommend any more highly! Thanks Bob!
