What’s the Message of the Bible in One Sentence?

I heard about this on Kevin DeYoung’s blog — Dane Ortlund, Senior Editor in the Bible division at Crossway, asked twenty-five pastors and scholars the question mentioned above in a single sentence. Their answers (located here) are great food for thought!

One thing I found interesting was the variety of answers — some are quite long, some very short, some focus on covenant, others on redemption, many mention Christ’s name, others imply Christ.

May these sentences stir our hearts and lead us to a deeper love for the Bible.
