The Bookcase: The God Who Saves
The God Who Saves presents the powerful story, woven throughout the diverse texts of the Old Testament, of a God who is urgently and passionately in love, not just with Israel, but with all of God’s creatures, especially the poor and powerless. For the beginning university student, this textbook is an engaging and accessible encounter with the Old Testament from the perspective of ancient Israel. With captivating and rich content enhanced by maps, tables, biblical reading assignments, discussion topics, and further research prompts, the conversation within this book is deepened in its ability to reach academic and spiritual concepts. It also provides supporting materials available to instructors, such as multiple quiz and exam questions, course syllabi and schedules, and more.
