    3. Okay, the book itself is not exciting, but the content is incredibly meaningful The lessons of this book helped by lectures from the author have completely, permanently, reshaped the way I engage with the Old Testament I certainly don t fully understand everything I read in the OT, but I m no longer intimidated by some of the most dense passages of OT Scripture I d recommend this books for every Christian It s not your typical seminary book, because it s very accessible writing.


    4. A robust framework for interpreting and applying OT narratives Has given me the tools necessary to understand and apply the OT stories to a modern audience Although, the 400 pages could have been abridged to something shorter Helpful nonetheless.





    5. If you want to understand the Covenant God we worship you must read this book At times the author uses too many words to make his point, but other than that it is amazing.


    6. Good stuff here Helpful info about how to read and interpret historical narratives in the Bible Good to keep around for reference too.
