Publisher's Description

The forty-six books of the Old Testament offer a rich feast of spiritual nourishment, yet they are by no means the easiest books to read and understand. Without a proper "tour guide," a person’s trip through the Old Testament often ends shortly after it begins.
The Stories of the Old Testament takes the difficult task of reading the Old Testament and turns it into an exciting and enjoyable journey. Author Jim Campbell leads readers through central texts, essential stories, and major figures of the Old Testament in one hundred carefully selected readings. Each of the readings is meant to be completed in one sitting and is paired with Jim’s enlightening guide to the text. You’ll also find dozens of short, easy-to-grasp informational pieces that supply the background and commentary you’ll need to understand the Old Testament in context. Perhaps most important, Jim helps us connect our stories today to those of long ago and see ourselves as a part of God’s ongoing redemptive work that began "in the beginning."
