Product Description

Using an approach similar to his Parables from the Back Side, Kalas now opens up new possibilities of insight into selected Old Testament stories by entering them through the "back side" through a unique starting point, a creative retelling, a new "lens," or the eyes of a minor or unsympathetic character. Kalas' creative approach both clarifies basic teachings and introduces new possibilities of meaning, even for those who are most familiar with the stories. Enriched with contemporary illustrations and personal experiences, this volume will provide new perspectives on Old Testament stories. Study Guide included.

Publisher's Description

Using an approach similar to that in his book Parables from the Back Side, popular author J. Ellsworth Kalas brings a new perspective to selected Old Testament stories by approaching them from the “back side”—through a unique starting point, a creative retelling, a new “lens,” or the eyes of a minor or unsympathetic character.

Chapter titles and Scripture: “The Second Sin” (Genesis 3:1-13); “The Importance of Naming Joseph” (Genesis 30:22-24); “Because My Mother Told Me” (Exodus 2:1-10); “Moses’ Midlife Crisis” (Exodus 2:11-22); “Patron Saint of the Minority Report” (Numbers 13:1-3, 25-33); “Tragic Son, Tragic Father” (Judges 11:1-6, 30-35); “Honey in the Lion” (Judges 14:5-14); “Beauty and the Beast” (1 Samuel 25:2-42); “A Refugee at the King’s Table” (2 Samuel 9:1-13); “In Defense of Job’s Wife” (Job 2:1-10); “Jonah’s Christmas Story” (Jonah 3:1-6, 10; Matthew 12:38-42); “God Is Better Than His Plans” (Ruth 1:1-5; 4:13-17).

Includes 12 Sessions with a study guide.
