$65.00

Hardback
The World and the Word is a fresh introduction to the Old^Testament driven largely by the fact that so much Christian^preaching and teaching today increasingly ignores what is 80^percent of the Bible. Authors Eugene Merrill, Mark Rooker,^and Michael Grisanti work through the world and text of the^Old Testament always making three major points:
  • ^ The Old Testament is a rich source of theology and^doctrine that is presupposed by the New Testament.^Without it, Christian theology would be seriously^deficient.^
  • ^ Mastery of the Old Testament is crucial to an understanding^of the New Testament.^
  • ^ The Old Testament offers, by teaching and example,^practical principles of belief and behavior for contemporary^times. Who God was and what He did then can^be replicated in the lives of men and women today.
^Separating the verifiable biblical and extra-biblical data^from the various interpretations of that same information,^the book further shows how the Old Testament forms the^platform and matrix from which sprang the life, ministry,^and teachings of Jesus and the church. The World and the^Word will help students see an entry point into the very^heart and design of God who loves them and wishes to make^them the special object of His grace
