Companion to the Old Testament

For the Interpreter Within Each of Us
  • By Ted Leach
$35.95

Beginners to Bible study will enjoy the simple language in this useful introduction to the Old Testament. Long-time students of the Bible who want more than a literal approach to scripture will find refreshing interpretations for some of the more difficult passages. The author respects the historical context of the ancient biblical stories and encourages the reader to make practical application to today's world. This book helps Christians understand how the Old Testament is "community property" shared by Jews, Christians and Muslims. It is a constructive resource for interfaith discussion, particularly as people of different faiths (or no faith) seek to identify some shared principles of our common humanity. Abraham, revered by Jews, Christians and Muslims, can be a starting point for greater mutual understanding. The Jewish concept of Messiah can be a metaphor of hope for all people.

Footnotes are included for those who "want to know more" about a given topic. "Questions for Reflection" at the end of each chapter facilitate group discussion. A concise index is provided. The book's introduction and ten chapters are suitable for a 10-12 week study.
