Product Description

Stories are among the primary means God uses to reveal his truth to us in Scripture. The Old Testament is filled with stories: Noah and the ark, Daniel in the lions' den, Ruth and Boaz--stories of great men and women of God.

What does God want us to learn from these stories? Is there more to them than meets the eye? Richard L. Pratt says yes, and he carefully outlines a method for grasping the wisdom of these ageless narratives. Beginning with the role of the Holy Spirit, he sets forth a three-step process of biblical interpretation combining preparation, investigation, and application.

Pratt is sensitive to the needs of both the beginner and the theological student. He insightfully guides us through considerations of attitudes and orientation, language and history, writers and characters, scenes and events, ancient and modern cultures, and more.

    This is a wonderful book that leads me to understand the importance of the Old Testament. It elaborates some stories in relation to the meaning of the story. I really recommend this book. It is "a must" read book.
