Shadow Sides

Eric Peels

$16.99

Paperback
"The way in which the Old testament speaks about God may be alien and even frightening to the average reader of the Bible. The God who hides himself in anger, executes revenge, and who in jealousy outpours wrath and judgement - who is he? Can this God be trusted? These are questions that not only raise theological problems, but also touch the heart of our faith and experience." "This book is written for all those who stumble or who have ever stumbled over questions such as these. It encourages us to read the Bible 'from within' and shows that when we listen with an open mind to the message of the Old Testament, we can get new and surprising insights. Questions at the close of each chapter make this an ideal resource for reflection and discussion as we are led to a deeper understanding of the 'shadow sides' of God in the Old Testament."--BOOK JACKET.
