Item description for Old Testament Turning Points: The Narratives That Shaped a Nation by Victor H. Matthews...

Overview
Adam and Eve. God's covenant with Abraham, the deportation of Judah and their eventual return to Jerusalem-these are the Old Testament stories most people remember, and for good reason. According to veteran Old Testament professor Victor Matthews, these stories are essential to the identity of Israel as God's people. Matthews identifies eight landmark stories that not only shaped Israelite identity but also continued to echo throughout the Old Testament as Israel grew into its role as the people of God. He examines the stories in detail, showing how they provide a foundation for later Old Testament stories and events. Helpful sidebars, a glossary, indexes, and a selected bibliography provide readers with tools for further exploration. This book will be of interest to serious lay readers, Bible students, and church leaders. Paperback, 208 pages
