The Old Testament is God's biography, the story of his passionate encounters with people. It is also a prequel to the story of Jesus, who came to answer the questions that troubled the ancient writers and still trouble us today. For expressing our deepest longings and voicing the full range of our lives and emotions, the Old Testament has no equal. Philip Yancey is your guide as you explore these sometimes shocking, often cryptic divine writings. During eight riveting, interactive group sessions, you will come to know God more intimately, anticipate Jeus more fervently, and find a wonderful, wise companion for your faith journey. This leader's guide gives you clear, step-by-step guidance for conducting eight interactive group sessions that will change your picture of the Old Testament forever. You'll find directions, an explanation of how each session is divided, page references to the participant's guide, charts, discussion questions, closing meditations, and everything else you need to make each hour-long session a productive and thoroughly rewarding experience.
Award-winning author Philip Yancey serves as guide and interpretive leader of ten video study sessions. In a series of in-depth interviews and explanations he covers five crucial segments of the Old Testament: 1. Job: Seeing in the Dark 2. Deuteronomy: A Taste of Bittersweet 3. Psalms: Spirituality in Every Key 4. Ecclesiastes: The End of Wisdom 5. The Prophets: God Talks Back Philip approaches each of these major segments from a different point of view--from the paradoxes of Ecclesiastes to the poetry of the Psalms--and adds additional interpretive material extending the reach of his best-selling book. He teams again with the Emmy Award-winning production team responsible for video production of the "What's So Amazing About Grace?" Zondervan Groupware. Many Christians tend to ignore the Old Testament or dismiss it as impenetrable and obscure. Philip Yancey's combination of scholarship and insight brings new light to old material and stimulates new discussion, thought, and further study.
