New Infographic: The Order and Causes of Salvation and Damnation

I have pointed out before that the the whole notion of visual theology—of presenting truth visually—is far from new. To the contrary, people have been doing this all through the ages. A couple of weeks ago we shared an infographic based on one created centuries ago by John Bunyan. Today we’ve got a complementary graphic based on the work of William Perkins. It is likewise called “The Order and Causes of Salvation and Damnation” (since that is what both men …

The End of the World As We Know It: An Infographic

Of all the many requests we’ve had for infographics, none has been as consistent as the request for a visual presentation of the different views of the end times. And for good reason–it is a complicated and much-debated subject. Eager to please, we got to work on a graphic we’ve called “The End of the World As We Know It.” It presents the three most prominent views of the end times (and, indeed, of our current time). We hope you …

The Order and Causes of Salvation and Damnation: An Infographic

Though the name Visual Theology may be new, the idea is not. In fact, all the way back in the seventeenth century John Bunyan produced an incredible work of visual theology titled “A Map Shewing the Order and Causes of Salvation and Damnation.” In a pair of side-by-side timelines he traced the salvation of the believer (or the elect) and the damnation of the unbeliever (or the reprobate). This chart has since been reproduced a number of times but, to …

Infographic: For the Glory of the Lord

It’s one of our favorite stories from the era of the Judges. God’s people are being oppressed by Midian and God has chosen an unlikely man to be their deliverer. Gideon is going to smash the Midianite army, but lest there be any doubt who is ultimately responsible for the victory, the Lord speaks with Gideon: “The people with you are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hand, lest Israel boast over me, saying, ‘My own hand has …

Visual Theology: The Tabernacle

In Exodus 25:8-9 the Lord gives this extraordinary command to Moses and the people of Israel: “Then have them make a sanctuary for me, and I will dwell among them. Make this tabernacle and all its furnishings exactly like the pattern I will show you.” This chapter and the four that follow are devoted to the Lord’s highly specific instructions for the building of his chosen dwelling place. This new Visual Theology print gives a layout of the tabernacle to scale …

Now Available: Visual Theology Presentation Slides

I am excited to announce that you can now teach through Visual Theology the book with the official Visual Theology Presentation Slides! We took every single graphic in the book and customized it for display in a teaching or preaching presentation. We didn’t just simply resize the graphics either. Every single graphic was re-worked and custom built to display the information best on a presentation slide! 194 total slides. Each slide is in 16:9 HD format. Each slide measures 1920 x 1080. Slides …

Visual Theology: Judges

It has been a little while since I’ve provided an update on Visual Theology (the book) as well as new Visual Theology posters and graphics. It is time to remedy that! As you know, Visual Theology (the book) rapidly sold out of its initial printings and it took a few weeks for the printer to catch up. However, it is now in stock at most stores in North America and Europe. We have nearly completed the PowerPoint slides to go …

Visual Theology: Gratitude, Explanations, and FAQs

It was a week ago today that we released my new book Visual Theology: Seeing and Understanding the Truth About God (which, of course, I co-authored with Josh Byers). Now, just a week later, it’s out of stock at Amazon, Westminster Books, Lifeway, CBD, and pretty well every other bookseller. I’ve had a number of people get in touch to ask why they can’t track it down. I did some digging and conference calling this morning and came up with …

Visual Theology @ T4G

As you know, my book Visual Theology: Seeing and Understanding the Truth About God is set for an April release. The release date matches up with the Together for the Gospel conference and for that reason Zondervan has decided to host a Visual Theology event. If you are coming to T4G, you are invited to attend! Josh Byers and I will be discussing the book and offering suggestions for how pastors, teachers, and leaders can make use of visual theology. …

One Another: A New Visual Theology Print

The New Testament contains at least 40 passages that contain the words “one another.” Each one of these points to a way that Christians are to treat, or are not to treat, each other.  As Josh Byers and I prepare for the release of our book Visual Theology: Seeing and Understanding the Truth About God (now available for pre-order and including free gifts!) we are beginning to release some of the book’s images in poster format. Combined with our existing Visual …
