Product Description

Does your knowledge of the Old Testament feel like a grab bag of people, books, events and ideas? How many times have you resolved to really understand the OT? To finally make sense of it?

Perhaps you are suffering from what Sandra Richter calls the "dysfunctional closet syndrome." If so, she has a solution. Like a home-organizing expert, she comes in and helps you straighten up your cluttered closet. Gives you hangers for facts. A timeline to put them on. And handy containers for the clutter on the floor. Plus she fills out your wardrobe of knowledge with exciting new facts and new perspectives.

The whole thing is put in usable order--a history of God's redeeming grace. A story that runs from the Eden of the Garden to the garden of the New Jerusalem. Whether you are a frustrated do-it-yourselfer or a beginning student enrolled in a course, this book will organize your understanding of the Old Testament and renew your enthusiasm for studying the Bible as a whole.

Editorial Reviews

"The Old Testament tells of God's creation and the redemption of his people. Granted, it is a story that climaxes in the New Testament, but the New Testament cannot be understood apart from the Old. Christians have neglected the study of the Old Testament because (if we are honest) we find it confusing and distant from Jesus Christ, the center of our faith. Sandra Richter's The Epic of Eden helps the reader discover the riches and passion of the Old Testament story. This book will not only expand your knowledge, it will deepen your spiritual life."

    This is a great foundational book! I have been studying our "Hebrew Roots" for some time and this book truly helped pull together and organize all the information I've been learning. This is an easy read and a MUST HAVE. This book will be recommended to everyone I know or everyone who asks for a good resource.

    All my life I have read the stories of the Old Testament, but only as separate unrelated stories. In Epic of Eden, Dr. Richter has helped me identify the undeniable thread of COVENANT RELATIONSHIP that knits these stories together. I am forever grateful!

    Great background and historical information that really explains how current day readers can understand OT customs & actions so that we can apply Biblical themes and ideas into our context.
