There are many truths in scripture that are never explicitly stated yet are present in every story in the Bible. For example, we miss God’s best for us when we are disobedient, and when God acts, it always results in the greatest good, for the greatest number, for the longest period of time. But while these and other truths are available for us, there may not always be an explicit chapter and verse of the Bible to consult.
In God’s Megathemes, author Jim Phillips identifies over twenty “megathemes” of scripture—those principles, lessons, ideas, and truths that are never explicitly stated but that pervade the Lord’s message to us. Arranged under six major themes for your spiritual growth, these megathemes range from themes of the trustworthiness of God and his Word, the destructiveness of sin, and the goodness of the gospel to what it means to live a Christlike life, how God provides for us, and what kind of adversity we face as followers of Jesus.
Knowing these truths will affect your deepest convictions about who God is, what God does, and why he does it. God’s Megathemes will help any who want to know God better to find the spiritual nourishment they need from uncovering the truths of God’s Word.
