Dane Ortlund, a senior editor at Crossway Books, recently asked a handful of scholars and pastors to distill the message of the Bible to a single sentence.
While there are a number of good responses, I would answer a bit differently. I would say that the message of the Bible is the same as the basic definition of the Christian faith given by the Dutch theologian Herman Bavinck:
God the Father has reconciled His created but fallen world through the death of His Son, and renews it into a Kingdom of God by His Spirit.
How would you condense the Bible’s message into a single sentence?
