Back in college, I received a worn copy of The Scarlet Thread Through the Bible by W.A. Criswell. The book was originally a 5-hour sermon preached on New Year’s Eve 1961.
In this sermon, Criswell traced redemptive history through the entire Bible—from the blood spilled after the Fall to the redemption of the saints in Revelation. The book, which is a compilation of his sermon, provided later readers with a breathtaking grand narrative of Scripture.
While the book has been out of print for some time, the folks at LifeWay have republished The Scarlet Thread as a ebook. Best of all, through The Gospel Project, they are offering it as a free download (PDF and ePub)! If you are interested in this rich resource on redemption, be sure to check it out!
