What is the overarching story of the Bible?

During our last Tuesday night dinner we began exploring the questions from the Brian McLaren book A New Kind of Christianity. In this book he discusses 10 questions that are transforming the Christian faith. So, along with Brian we began to ask: “What is the overarching story of the Bible?” This collage mandala, is our first wrestlings with this question.
