Item description for Great Themes of Scripture: Old Testament (Great Themes of Scripture Series) by Richard Rohr & Joseph Martos...

You are about to set out on a great adventurea Richard Rohr told his original listeners when The Great Themes of Scripture talks were recorded for St. Anthony Messenger Press in 1973. Today the Lord will give you something new. All you have to do isacome before the Lord expecting and wanting something more than you already have. Now, more than 100,000 tapes later, these powerful, challenging, inspiring talks are available in print thanks to the professional and sensitive editing of Joseph Martos. Martos, who compares his collaboration with Rohr to that of Rodgers and Hammerstein, says: If I could acknowledge that the words are often mine, I must always admit that the music is Richard's. This first volume offers newcomers to the Hebrew Scriptures a feel for their overall religious themes. But for all readers this book uniquely sounds the call of the Lord and invites response in a way that will touch lives as deeply as Rohr's original talks.

Reviews - What do customers think about Great Themes of Scripture: Old Testament (Great Themes of Scripture Series)?

Great service  Apr 11, 2007
The book I received was delivered in a timely fashion and was in great shape. I will use this vendor again should the need arise.
Great Old Testament Overview  Jan 7, 2003
Building upon a series of lectures given in the early seventies, Rohr and Martos expand on the ideas to look at the books of the Old Testament from a more macro view. From this stepped back view, the authors show how the books fit together, and how the parts of books such as Exodus build a contextual history of the times and how people are brought together with God. Rohr rejects fundamentalist or biblical literalist readings of the Old Testament, choosing to look at what the stories of the bible meant to those who originally wrote and shared the stories, and how they interact with our relationship with God today. This is one of the best series to lay out a good basis for studying the Old Testament and to understand what the bible is trying to tell us. A succinct volume that can be read again and again, it continues to bringing us into a greater understanding of faith and the Bible.
Great Themes of Scripture, Old Testament  May 25, 2000
This book presents an overview of the great themes which are common in many Old Testament books. The book is easy to read yet inspires the reader to see in these ancient writings deep truths which are still relevant today. Most powerfully the authors site multitudinous examples of God's abounding love for mankind. It is very inspirational.
