The Seven Wonders of the World: The Gospel in the Storyline of the Bible

Iain Campbell deals with the seven spiritual wonders of the world, as against the normal idea of seven physical wonders. They are creation, redemption, inheritance, incarnation, resurrection, Pentecost and Christ’s glorious appearing. A chapter is allocated to each wonder, and the whole book is marked by clarity and conciseness. The author’s intent is to…
