Mingling personal anecdotes with scriptural wisdom, author and pastor Murray Andrew Pura explores the many ways water is portrayed in the Bible. From creation---when the earth was formed from water---to its possession by Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob for their flocks. From the exodus and the parting of the Red Sea to the time of the prophet Elisha and the healing of Namaan the Syrian in the Jordan River. From the rise of the kingdom under David to the fall of the kingdom and Israel's exile by the waters of Babylon. In all these dramatic events, and many more, Pura demonstrates how the physical and symbolic representation of water in ancient Scripture offers modern Christians new insights about following Christ. Pura also examines how water was used in Jesus' ministry: Jesus was baptized in water, walked on water, turned water into wine, and healed with water. Understanding the symbolism of water is key to understanding Scripture. Readers will meditate on: The Red Sea's challenging waters .... How do we conquer obstacles? The rivers of Babylon and their waters of darkness ... How do we handle tragedy and suffering? Streams in the desert and the waters of rejuvenation...What do we do when our spiritual lives are dry? And much, much more This refreshing new book will help readers discover the deeper meanings of water in Scripture and better understand the life-giving power of a Christian life.
