The Promised Land recognizes that the Bible is not always the easiest book to read. Indeed, the culture and practices of biblical times, and the way the books of the Bible are presented can be real stumbling blocks to reading and understanding its message.
As a consequence, this first instalment of "A 21st Century Bible" presents the Bible in a logical, historical order. It is based on the Hebrew Scriptures, but is supplemented by additional comments interwoven into the text to enhance the readability and understanding of both the narrative and the laws.
The Promised Land covers the period from Abraham to Joshua, and is divided into two parts for easier reading: A. Narrative; and B. YHWH's Laws.
Brian A. Curtis was born in Kent, England. He began his working career in the insurance industry before migrating to Australia in 1974. Six years later, he began studying at Ridley Theological College, Melbourne, and in 1983 was ordained by the Anglican Church of Australia. Since then, he has ministered full-time, part-time, as a locum, and on a casual basis in many churches in Tasmania. In 1990, he took a 10-year break from the ordained ministry and worked with welfare recipients and the long-term unemployed. Curtis' passion is that people should have a good understanding of the Hebrew and Christian scriptures, particularly in a world where they are so often misunderstood and misrepresented.
