Time Travel to the Old Testament

Author: Chris Sinkinson

Product code: B530

An invitation to bring our Bibles and imaginations on a trip into the fourth dimension. It won`t be an easy trip and it certainy won`t be a passive one, but the Old Testament will come alive in a new way..

While both the Old and New Testaments are part of our Christian heritage, the Old Testament can feel particularly foreign and mysterious. Its violence is startling; its heroes flawed; its history complex; and its locations a far cry from Kansas. While no one needs to become an archeological expert to grasp the message of Scripture, background information can deepen our appreciation and understanding as we read.
In this wide-ranging, lively introduction to the world of the Old Testament, Chris Sinkinson gives an overview of storytelling techniques, laws, people, beliefs, and geography, removing misunderstandings by putting details in their historical context.
