Progress of Redemption

Series Description

The Bible has many books, sections and kinds of literature. Old Testament. New Testament. Sixty-six books, yet one book. History. Poetry. Prophecy. Letters. Genealogy. Teaching. Apocalypse.  — How is a person make sense of it all? And how does it all fit together?

In Progress of Redemption, James M. Hatch takes you on a journey through the entire Bible unlike any you’ve ever experienced. You will go beyond learning content to discover how all the parts of the Bible relate to one another. This course studies these relationships and, in particular, the unity and progress of what God is doing and saying. You will trace the unifying theme of redemption as it progresses from Genesis to Revelation.

Author Philip Yancey, in his introduction to The Bible Jesus Read, says that Buck Hatch was the one “who first opened up to me the delights and mysteries of the Old Testament.”  Progress of Redemption will do the same for you. This course is taught by more alumni of Columbia International University around the world than any other one course.
