Introducing the Old Testament

Introducing the Old Testament
A Short Guide to Its History and Message

Publisher:Zondervan

This introduction to the Old Testament give a lot of information to each book of the Old testament which helps you understand the culture and people of these times. The book is done in a way that it makes it very easy to understand what each book is telling us and what we can expect from these books. I think anything that helps us understand God’s word is well worth the time to read. This book is a must to add to your other commentaries and handbooks.

The Jesus We Missed

THE JESUS WE MISSED – The Surprising Truth About the Humanity of Christ, by Patrick Henry Reardon —- I found this to be a great book, not sure what to expect when I ordered it.

He wanted to experience everything that we humans do. By reading this book you are taken through the different human experiences with Jesus. I have found a new understanding in what Jesus when through

Here a quote from the book that I really like: “Jesus paid the price of man’s sins not simply by accepting death but by the actual experience of dying—by tasting death.” This is one of those books that you will enjoy and want to read over again.
