9780974948201: Listening to the Language of the Bible

Listening to the Language of the Bible is a guide for discovering the richness of the Scriptures in their Hebraic setting.

The book contains more than sixty brief, illustrated devotional articles that unpack the meaning of biblical words and phrases for life today. By examining the Hebrew and Jewish cultural context of some of the Bible s seemingly odd phrases, it shares insights that clarify reading and deepen Bible study.

Listening explores a variety of topics from the perspective of the ancient Hebraic writers, including prayer, family and the promised Messiah. The book also looks at the powerful sayings of Jesus in light of the Jewish culture of his time. Very useful as a continuing reference for Bible study.

The book can be read by itself for a brief overview, or with a Companion Bible Study (Lois Tverberg, 2005) to begin your own exploration of the Scriptures from a Hebraic perspective.

Product Description:

Listening to the Language of the Bible is an introduction to rich Hebrew words and Jewish cultural concepts that greatly deepen Bible study. It is a guide for discovering the beauty of the Scriptures in their Hebraic setting. From seemingly odd phrases, it shares important insights that do not translate well from culture to culture.

The book examines many topics from the perspective of the ancient Hebraic writers, including prayer, family and the promised Messiah. It also looks at the powerful sayings of Jesus in light of the Jewish culture of his time.

The book contains more than 60 brief, illustrated devotional articles that unpack the meaning of a biblical word or phrase for our lives. It works well both for personal devotions or small group discussion. With many pages of references and indexes, it will be useful as a continuing reference for Bible study.

From the Publisher:

The response to this title has been extremely positive! This book has been very popular for family devotions and small group studies. Many are using it to teach adult classes as well.

In response to demand, the publisher will release the Companion Bible Study for Listening to the Language of the Bible in May 2005. The study shows readers additional passages and asks thought-provoking questions about what the Bible is saying through its culture for our time. Check en-gedi.org for more information.
