Overview

Studying the narrative and poetic pieces of the Old Testament can be difficult for many readers. These passages present different challenges than the scientific observations of Luke or the epistles of Paul in the New Testament. The SPCK Old Testament Studies Collection brings together four new studies that bring the ancient content of the Old Testament to life for twenty-first-century readers. Michael Sadgrove’s work Lost Sons takes a wide view of how the Old Testament establishes God’s character as a loving father pursuing humanity from the beginning. Aaron Chalmers’ Exploring the Religion of Ancient Israel delves into the religious systems and culture that direct most of the Old Testament. Whether you’re trying to connect to the Old Testament yourself, or looking for a way to communicate its message to others, this collection is full of fresh content that bridges the gap between ancient Israel and today.

In the Logos edition, these valuable volumes are enhanced by amazing functionality. Scripture citations link directly to English translations, and important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps.

  • Pages: 176

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Lo and Behold! was written for anyone who has ever wondered what makes the Bible one of the world’s greatest and most enduring works of literary genius. From the first awe-inspiring story of creation to the extraordinary antics of the book of Jonah, this volume offers an intriguing journey through some of the Bible’s most significant and memorable narratives. Trevor Dennis entertains and enlightens while enabling the reader to experience the rich texture and depth of meaning that lie beneath the surface.

Looking God in the Eye

  • Author: Trevor Dennis
  • Publisher: SPCK
  • Publication Date: 1998
  • Pages: 128

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The Hebrew Bible—especially the book of Genesis—contains some of the most vivid stories in the world about encounters with the divine. Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, Noah, Abraham, Hagar and Ishmael, Jacob, Joseph; these names sound deep chords within us. In Looking God in the Eye, Trevor Dennis challenges conventional understandings of these passages and how God is presented in them.

Looking God in the Eye is also a book about grace and prayer. As Trevor Dennis reminds us, the stories of Genesis “have the power to bring God out of heaven and down to earth.” All Bible passages have been freshly translated by Dennis, who is canon chancellor at Chester Cathedral.

Lost Sons: God’s Long Search for Humanity

  • Author: Michael Sadgrove
  • Publisher: SPCK

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Stories in the books of Genesis and Exodus tell of fathers whose sons are lost to them through deaths of various kinds. One is murdered. Another is abandoned. A third is forgotten. A fourth is taken for sacrifice. A fifth is supplanted. A sixth is sold into slavery. A seventh is secreted away. Through these accounts we trace the theme with which the biblical narrative begins: God’s first son, Adam, by becoming “lost” to his Creator, sets in motion God’s long pursuit of humanity.

Michael Sadgrove is dean of Durham. He has written on a range of theological subjects, and is the author of The Eight Words of Jesus, Wisdom and Ministry: The Call to Leadership, and I Will Trust in You.

Exploring the Religion of Ancient Israel: Prophet, Priest, Sage, and People

  • Author: Aaron Chalmers
  • Publisher: SPCK
  • Publication Date: 2012
  • Pages: 176

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

This book aims to give students an introduction to the religious and social world of ancient Israel. It consists of two parts. The first part explores the major religious offices mentioned in the Old Testament, including prophets, priests, sages, and kings. As well as considering what these key people said and did, the author traces the process someone might have gone through to be recognized as a prophet, priest or sage, and where you would have had to go in ancient Israel if you wanted to locate someone who held one of these offices. The second part focuses on the religious beliefs and practices of the “common” people, as this was the group that made up the vast majority of ancient Israel’s population.
