Item description for An Introduction to the Old Testament: Journey into the Mystery of God by Laurin J. Wenig...
Overview Our human experience reminds us that we are people "on the go." We make our way from one day of life to the next, from year to another. The Scriptures can tell us a great deal about this journey: the journey of people like ourselves, facing obstacles and temptations on their way home to God. Father Wenig's highly readable An Introduction to the Old Testament brings life to people, the literature, and the times of biblical history in a clear, engaging style rooted in years of teaching and lecturing on the Old Testament. Each chapter is like a snapshot, capturing a moment in time with plenty of background detail. This text is not just a style of Scripture - sometimes humorous, sometimes ironic, always down-to-earth, based on solid scholarship, and relevant to our lives today. The book includes a wealth of study material: copious endnotes, reflection/discussion questions, a timeline of historical events, Jewish cultural information, a glossary with Hebrew and Greek terms, and extensive index and a bibliography.
