Bible for Self-Starters

  • By Leon D. Engman
$21.00
Product Description
This book strengthens next-level scripture engagement for Jesus followers, pushing us to: Move beyond fill-in-the-blank discipleship programs, Feel as competent about the Bible as we feel about our life work, and Get comfortable living with unanswered questions while we seek and serve God. Bible for Self-starters presents the Bible as it presents itself: an ancient Jewish story as relevant as today's news. It is a story you can know, understand, and apply. ""On Scene"" insight sections put you next to Moses, David, Peter, and many other Bible characters in the eyes-wide-open dilemma of making critical decisions as life unfolds. ""Meditation"" and ""Deeper Still"" questions Point out the Bible's thematic and theological hyperlinks that weave its stories into the whole story, Give permission to peek behind doors left ajar in the text, and Encourage you to explore uncomfortable implications and apply the Scripture to real life. As a human, feel awed and connected to God's story. Climb out of your safe, warm, bubble bath and dive into the deep ocean called the Bible. ""Many of us want to read the Bible but are intimidated--we're afraid we won't understand any of it. Dr. Leon Engman's masterful guide to reading the Scriptures opens our eyes to see the biblical authors' intentions and helps open our hearts to see how to respond. Beyond that, it highlights key biblical theological truths that should guide our lives. If you want your Bible reading to go beyond obligation to illumination, Bible for Self-starters is for you."" --Michael Rydelnik, Professor of Jewish Studies and Bible, Moody Bible Institute Leon Engman is senior pastor at Evangelical Covenant Church in Woodstock, Connecticut. He is ordained in the Evangelical Free Church, and served as adjunct faculty at Moody Bible Institute and Simpson University. A traveler and storyteller, he maintains that ""to read as a believer is to be unafraid of what God has waiting around the next corner"" (quoted from his chapter in the Moody Handbook to Messiah in the Old Testament, forthcoming).
