Decent introduction to biblical theology. Basically, it is an overview of the biblical storyline. Introduces themes and motifs satisfactorily. There are several points which seem to be contrived and unnecessary. If aimed towards a lay audience, some of these parts can be removed (i.e. the discussion of the original composition dates of the creation account) since it may lead to confusion to those unfamiliar with the debates.

Along with Goldsworthy, the affirmation that both expositors and hearers should have a big-picture understanding of the Bible can be made. However, for this reviewer, The Greatness of the Kingdom by Alva J. McClain, which begins at Genesis 1 and works forward and takes the OT prophecies literally, is a better starting point for both congregants than According to Plan.
