"The theme "Seven Wonders of the Word" is, in part, a play on the Seven Wonders of the World, attractions of great beauty and also of great skill and design. ... Focusing on the Seven Wonders of the Word, rather than the world, gives us the opportunity to see and experience the Scriptures from a new perspective and, we hope, to be deeply moved by them as we encounter their great beauty and their great power.
Each week has a theme, and all seven themes are phrased as verbs. The Word creates, calls, commands, saves, sustains, shapes, and sends. Note that it is the Word that does the work. We, the readers, are the ones being acted upon: created, called, commanded, saved, sustained, shaped, and sent."
