lay out in simple form what he sees to be the central message of each book of the Bible, Campbell Morgan outlines the primary message in the form of a chart. As he writes the chapter, he follows by expounding on the basic points in the chart. For the Old Testament, he breaks down each book into "the permanent values" and "the living message". His layout for the books of the New Testament contains "the essential message" and "the application".
Morgan refers to the old Testament as the "library of expectation and hope". In seeking the permanent value of each OT book, he declares the foundation of hope; the living message that will apply what is permanent to the life and time of every reader.
In discovering the essential message of each NT book, Morgan points toward Christ, "who is the final speech of God to the world". From the essential message of each book, Morgan draws the reader to consider how that message can be applied to their daily life, to make them moment by moment ore like the living Christ.
What's in a name? Everything. Particularly in the Bible, personal names and titles have significant meanings and often convey a wealth of information about the individual being depicted. This is most truly the case with the titles and symbols used to describe the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Scriptures instruct us that the way to know God is through Christ. A proper understanding of who Jesus is lies at the very root of the Christian religion and impacts the daily life of every believer. Even Jesus used these names to teach truths regarding Himself. When He wanted people to know that there is no way to heaven but through Him, He said, "I am the Door." And when He taught how kind He is to those who follow Him, He said, "I am the Good Shepherd." When He desired to impress on minds how weak and worthless we are without Him, He speaks of Himself as the Vine, and His disciples as the branches.
Each chapter begins with a list of the dates of important events in that period, followed by an introduction to the period. Then the pivotal events of the period are mentioned, and an overview discusses these events and their impact on the Church.

Each chapter ends with a discussion of important translations of the Bible.
