The Bible uses hundreds of metaphors but the one that has attracted my attention the most is that of “God as Rock”. In this book we have tried to follow this rich vein of gold from Genesis to Revelation. We have discovered a treasure of stones that speak of God’s relationship with us. We trace the metaphor through the Old Testament, coming squarely to the feet of Jesus, the Cornerstone revealed, rejected and restored. At the end of our study, we will discover a mystery stone that may surprise you as you contemplate the final events God has in store for us.
