Synopsis of the Books of the Bible
by John Nelson Darby
This five-volume set is probably the single most important work produced by the great Brethren teachers of the19th century. In it, Mr. Darby gives a brief sketch of every passage of the Bible.
This book, like Brethren teaching as a whole, is especially strong in its presentation of the principles of the Bible. It has been said that while Luther unlocked the Bible, it was the Brethren who opened it. Through them the Lord recovered many truths lost since the first century concerning the Body of Christ, the practical testimony of the oneness of the Body of Christ, and the types and prophecies of Christ in the Old Testament. This book features an outline of biblical prophecies concerning the rapture of the saints, the return of Christ, and the end of the age.
