Reviews - What do our customers think?
An open treatment of the Old Testament  Apr 13, 2006
Every now and again a book comes along which opens the doors of understanding to very complex subjects - and this one is an exemplar of that. The open approach and format, free from ideology, brings the complex and confusing opus of the OT to life. Taking a non-partisan but not secular or irreligious approach - this philosophical and scholarly work reflects the modern mind of young and mature adults with a 21st century outlook on ancient wisdom and religious literature. It's the only book I have read on this subject which properly puts in perspective the cultural, historical and religious perspectives of an ancient middle eastern people who came to be known as the Israelites. It's an "Idiots Guide" or "OT for Dummies" book raised to the professional level. Fabulous piece of work.
