This is one of my favorite books for evangelistic Bible study and foundational principles for new disciples. John Cross does an excellent job explaining the necessity of the Gospel from Genesis 1 and how God uses the law as our schoolmaster pointing to Christ. Here is the summary on Amazon:
"Here is a book that explains the greatest of Bible themes clearly and logically. Rather than focusing on one part—and missing the whole—the author chronologically binds together the entire text into one great universal drama, looking at events from the perspective of those who experienced history in the making. The results are sometimes comical, sometimes frightening—but always true to the intent of the text.When you are done reading it, you may find yourself believing “the Book” like you never have before. Or you may decide not to. The author’s objective approach leaves that decision up to you."
