Do you sometimes find the archaic expressions used by Old Testament writers difficult to interpret? In light of later New Testament teachings, have you ever questioned if this earlier literature is really relevant to the Christian faith? In his fact-filled, updated study, Robert Laurin clarifies both questions. He leads readers of the Old Testament to "encounter more profoundly the God who, through the pages of the Bible, seeks to speak a word that affects life situations in today's world." For Laurin, the Old Testament is a background against which to view the life and works of Jesus Christ. To simplify your study, Laurin groups widely diverse Old Testament literature into basic clusters-historical books, short stories, song texts, wisdom texts, works of the prophets, and apocalyptic literature. You'll explore how the Old Testament was compiled, its chronological structure, and the cultures from which various parts originated. Each book study includes a discussion of its history, purpose, message or theological emphasis, and its literary style. Chapters conclude with questions for group discussion or personal reflection. Through this interesting introduction to the rich treasures of ancient biblical writings, you will learn to enjoy reading the Old Testament as "a record of God's involvement in the world and a medium through which God seeks to meet us, to have us respond-and find life." A free downloadable Leader's Guide is available for this resource.
