ByPastor Samuel Gori

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
“This innovative textbook at long last provides an Old and New Testaments survey for undergraduate students that goes beyond basic content. The book attempts to balance the literary, historical, and theological issues pertaining to each individual book and to the Old and New Testaments as a whole. This information does not simply rehash the biblical material, but assumes that the Scriptures are being read alongside the survey. The book focuses its primary attention on the purpose and message of each book and attempts to show how the literary structure of each one has been used to accomplish the author’s purpose. The survey also introduces readers to the history, archaeology, canon, geography of Old and New Testaments. In addressing critical issues of date and authorship, the survey avoids a polemical stance. Pastor Samuel Ghori seek to depend on the evidence of the text rather than on presuppositions to substantiate their views. His commitment to the authority of the biblical text results in this book. The authors approach the survey mindful of two complicating factors in Old Testament study. First, God’s revelation did not come by way of the English language or through Western culture, and therefore we today have to work carefully to receive the message clearly. Second, even when we are listening, we have a tendency to be selective about what we hear or to try to make the message conform to our ideas. The solution is to allow the Bible to speak for itself. The informed reader will find much innovation here and a keen awareness of current scholarship relating to the both Testaments. Above all, this textbook will bring a new vigor and excitement to the both Testaments as readers learn to discover its story for themselves and see how to understand it as a substantial part of God’s self-revelation to humankind. This is well reached and insightful book on the subject of the survey of old and new Testaments, If I were to recommend ONE book on the Rapture it would be this one.” Pastor Rizwan Younas Lahore Pakistan
