New life in ancient truths Nov 10, 2006
As stated in the editor's foreword, this is not a traditional Bible commentary. It is a compilation of excerpts from The People's Bible by Joseph Parker, the 19th century English Congregationalist preacher. Far from being a dry recapitulation of Biblical content, these excerpts are rich with insight and emotion. The language is beautiful. I particularly appreciated the writer's unabashed delight in the beauty of nature as a source of inspiration. Referring to the Bible verses that prompted Dr. Parker's insights is interesting and enriching. The illustrations are intricate and beautiful and contribute to the emotional depth of the writings. By applying ancient writings to modern lives, this book succeeds in clarifying the relevance of the Old Testament. This book is a gem.
