Walking with God is a narrative that takes you through the entire story of the Bible, from Genesis through the Pauline Epistles. Besides telling the story, Timothy Gray and Jeff Cavins explain why certain stories are important and how they relate to others. For example, they compare the return from the Babylonian exile to the Exodus. The book includes maps, diagrams and charts that help them make their points.
I learned a lot by reading Walking with God, ideas that had never crossed my mind and which I've never been taught--but I'll admit I haven't read a lot about the Old Testament, so I couldn't say whether the points they make are those commonly made in books about the Old Testament, or relatively unique perspectives on things. I have no way to judge the orthodoxy of the material except to say that Archbishop Chaput of Denver granted the book an Imprimatur.
As Catholics we hear large parts of the Old Testament read at mass; however, I think we miss the overall perspective if we don't do outside reading/study. Walking with God is a far less intimidating read than the entire Bible, and I think it gives a good overview of the story, the main points, of the whole Bible. Grade: A
