Product Description

Dianne Bergant sets the stage with a brief introduction to the First Testament itself, the world and religion of ancient Israel, and the Covenant between God and the Israelites. Then, in a unique presentation, she invites readers to explore the text through the lens of the people who populate it. Here we learn about the relationship between God and his people from Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Joshua, Deborah, David, Solomon, Moses, Isaiah, Aaron, Zadok, Woman Wisdom, Job, Ruth, and many more. In the process we learn the history and relevance of ancient Israel while learning about the ancestors, judges, kings, prophets, priests, wise ones, mysterious figures, rebels, lovers, and healers who bring the First Testament to life and lay the foundation for the New, or Second Testament. Discussion questions, a concluding summary, and ideas for further reading make this a perfect book for contemporary Christians and all students of the Bible.
