Special note: As of 2022, Metanarrative has been incorporated into the new Core 100 series and consequently provided a new cover.

The Bible is not a hodge-podge of scattered maxims and philosophical principles. It is rather a coherent story about God and the path he walks with his people.

Wedding beautiful, non-technical prose to a set of epic music lyrics in the margins, Tim Gallant’s Metanarrative traces the narrative arc of the whole Bible, unpacking a story of love, truth and beauty.

Starting before the beginning, and leading us through creation and the fall in Eden, through the stories of Abraham and Israel, the coming of the Messiah and all the way to final glory, this book offers an excellent foundation for learning the shape of biblical history and the patterns of God’s actions in rescuing weak and sinful people.

The companion music is an ongoing project under a process of improvement. The latest versions are available for free download from the Metanarrative project site.
