Many Christians hardly ever read the Old Testament of the Bible, thinking it somehow less important than the New Testament. In this book Dr Lalleman shows how the Old Testament is more than just a series of predictions about the coming of Jesus! The first part of the Bible is an Enduring Treasure, of lasting value for the Christian church, and as such it must continue to play an important role in our personal faith.
Dr Lalleman deals with such subjects as: creation, the Name and titles of God, sexuality, politics and the stranger, scepticism and doubt, laments, contradiction, and the prosperity gospel. There are helpful suggested questions for each topic, very useful for for group meetings, and a list of suggested further reading for those wishing to dig deeper into the Old’s Testament’s rich treasures.
He said to them, ‘Therefore every teacher of the law who has become a disciple in the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old.’ (Matthew 13:52)
