In Life's Big Questions, Vaughan Roberts shows us how there is unity in the diversity of the Scriptures. Building off of his previous acclaimed work (God's Big Picture, 2003), Roberts presents the Kingdom of God as a unifying theme for the whole Bible and then seeks to answer six of life's big questions with this theme in mind. For this book review, I hope to critically analyze the author's thesis/purpose, the methods he has used in explaining it, and his success in achieving his purpose.
Life's Big Questions is a compact yet concise volume that aids Christians in understanding and applying the Kingdom of God as it unfolds through the Scriptures. Vaughan Roberts has written a book that is easy to read and still beneficial to seminarians or Pastors, for he puts forward a framework that helps readers use this unifying theme of kingdom to walk through the entire Bible. The inclusion of numerous figures is very useful in elaborating on the different parts of Roberts proposed framework as it relates to each chapter's question. However, it would have been more beneficial if Roberts gave better mention in the text of the book about what the figures relate to (cf. Figure 26 and page 151 where he did do this well). Despite this minor faux pas, Life's Big Questions is an amazingly practical tool for applying biblical theology to all of life's issues - an aid to seeing the Scriptures as a unified whole. It is a Bible help that rightly keeps Jesus Christ front and center as the reigning Lord of the Kingdom of God.
