Helps readers gain new insight into intriguing questions related to the Bible, its characters, and the Christian faith

How is it, for instance, that some of the key personalities in the Bible story slip into the story almost unnoticed—like Judah, for example, an ancestor of King David and Jesus Christ. How did the symbolism of blood in Communion get started?

These themes and many others are investigated in this study, accompanied by a discussion guide.
