A Fresh Perspective On Biblical Tales Jun 3, 2000
My younger son suggested that I read Alloway's book. My son's literay tastes run to Robertson Davies and other highly literate authors, so I took his comments as being quite positive. And, he was right.
Alloway has taken the skeleton of little known and oft neglected biblical stories and overlaid a richness of detail and dialogue to illuminate the rawness of life in the crucible of experience of early modern humanity's struggle to reconcile the inner world with the harshness of the social environment, itself a reflection of harshness of the physical environment.
This is a book for those willing to travel beyond the superficial to the highly personal, intimate effort that every person must make to encounter the reality and meaning of his or her existence and reason for existence. It is a book for the robust explorer of spirituality in the world of pain and wonder and searching and confusion and insight.
