    Miriam's "Song of Deliverance," in Exodusmay be as old as the time of Moses. Many of them can be located with a fair degree of accuracy in the books of the Pentateuch, the first five books of the Old Testament. In each part they give a clear sense of how a particular section contributes to the whole in order to make sense of the rest. We may appropriately think of the giving as the divine element and the receiving as the human element.

    The book called Lamentations portrays some of the bitter experiences that followed King Zedekiah's flight from the city of Jerusalem at the time of the Babylonian conquest. All of these are part of the woes of church life in the United States at the beginning of the 21st century. But this passive stance is not true of the Old Testament authors, who begin with the assumption of a divine being whose character and purpose are disclosed, at least to some extent, in the course of human events. The newly formed community was predominantly religious rather than political. The important thing about them is the way in which the ideals of a later age are reflected in them.

    David's reign marks the high point in the history of the united kingdom. With the death of this king, a period of decline set in, and conditions went from bad to worse. This promise seemed impossible to fulfill because both Abraham and his wife, Sarah, were old and childless. However, this situation did not last very long, for the Roman government ultimately conquered the region. And when you get to the New Testament???

A Compact Guide to the Bible book

And this book is full of lies by omission along with the directly stated lies. Close Description This compact, one-semester introduction to the Bible prepares students to begin reading the biblical text as Christian Scripture, focusing on the meaning of Scripture for the church.

Old Testament of the Bible

I often ask my students who taught them how to read. This theocratic government came to an end when the people demanded a king, and Saul was chosen to head the newly formed monarchy.

Important to remember in this connection is that revelation is always and necessarily a two-way process that involves both a giving and a receiving. The beginnings of Hebrew history are obscure and cannot be known with certainty. He begins with an account of Israel's oppression by the Philistines, which, he argues, clearly shows the need for a strong and capable leader.

How many of the laws contained in the five books known as the Pentateuch were actually given by Moses is not known. It is clear, theologically acute, and written with beginning students in mind. Although there are good reasons for believing that these stories grew out of actual experiences, the narratives cannot be regarded as authentic history, nor can we place the same reliance on them as we do on the accounts of events that occurred after the settlement in Canaan.

In this respect, the real significance of their writings is to be understood, and to judge the value of the Old Testament account of events on the sole basis of either scientific or historical accuracy is a mistake. Clifton Black, Princeton Theological Seminary"A Compact Guide to the Whole Bible is unique in its sweeping, fast-paced, accessible invitation to read the Bible--the whole Bible--in all of its wonderful, challenging presentation of the God who meets us in this ancient, tough, revealing, and relevant book.

The end of each chapter opens the horizon of the next, thus preserving the thread of continuity throughout the various books and distinct theologies. After his death, the country was invaded by the Assyrian army, and for some time it looked as though Judah would suffer the same fate as Israel.

They deftly weave the two together as they guide readers through the Bible. In connection with this period of oppression, we first learn of Moses and his role in bringing about the deliverance of his people.

Those who had emerged from bondage in Egypt were then united with other tribes that had not been involved in the Egyptian oppression, and together they formed the nucleus from which the Hebrew state came into existence.

As such, Daniel stands in sharp contrast with the prophetic writings.

Hall and David R. It also consigns them to living out the gospel with all of the habits, practices and dispositions formed in them by their immersion in a culture driven by such forces as consumerism, racism, and nationalism.

These essays are well grounded in solid scholarship. One to read and keep reading! I have probably not told you things you did not already know. The book first explains what Christians believe about Scripture and gives a bird's-eye survey of the whole biblical story.

The promise of this slender volume is its commitment to genuinely invite students into the Bible by giving readers a keen sense of how each section of Scripture contributes to the whole and by identifying key landmarks for making sense of the biblical materials.

The attempt failed, but the demand for a monarchal type of government continued, and finally Samuel, who was the last of the judges, anointed Saul to be the first king of Israel.

This approach to Scripture as story becomes the overall motif for the entire book.Feb 17,  · “A Compact Guide to the Whole Bible is unique in its sweeping, fast-paced, accessible invitation to read the Bible—the whole Bible—in all of its wonderful, challenging presentation of the God who meets us in this ancient, tough, revealing, and relevant book.

Perhaps the greatest gift of A Compact Guide is that it dares to present the Bible as Scripture. Generations of people have lived and died by. The Bible Compass is divided into four sections each giving readers an approach or tool to reading Scripture.

Nov 08,  · Robert Nicholas’ book ‘The Christian’s Guide to the Bible’ is an exceptional book that focus’ on the Bible’s original calendar and chronological history. It’s an excellent book if you want to know when Biblical events happened and are going to happen.

If anyone wants to read the Bible this book is a must have! Although the Old Testament is often referred to as a book, it is really a collection of many books, or separate manuscripts, produced by different individuals over a long period of time.

These individual books were not written for the same purpose, nor were they considered to be of equal importance at the times when they were written. The Complete Guide to the Bible is a reliable, jargon-free handbook for average folks who want to better understand the entire Bible—non-Christian, new Christian, and veteran believers.

Fast-paced writing along with beautifully designed and illustrated pages entice readers into the book and keep them lingering throughout its pages.
