In Krazy Kinfolk, Barbara J. Essex continues in the tradition of her popular series of Bible studies. Each study unit reviews the stories of selected biblical "dysfunctional" families such as: 1) Abraham, Sarah and Hagar; 2) Jacob, Leah and Rachel; 3) Moses, Miriam and Aaron; 4) Lois, Eunice and Timothy; 5) Mordecai and Esther; and 6) Mary, Martha and Lazarus.
A historical/critical explanation of the text follows each review and provides background information to help make the story accessible and understandable to modern readers. Reflection questions conclude each unit, offering participants the opportunity to start a discussion about what can be learned from these characters and their stories. Ideal for individual and/or group study.
In her new, user-friendly book, Essex continues in the tradition of her popular Bible series with units that review the stories of selected biblical "dysfunctional" families.
