Old Testament Made Understandable
5 stars By Madeline, May 02 2018
Often when reading the Old Testament I have found difficulty understanding not only the story, but the meaning and the context of the story and how I can apply it to my own life. Grey's book not only simplifies what each book is about, but puts each book into the context of the Israelite people, and then explains what it means for us as a Christian people, and then what it can mean for me and you personally. I highly recommend this if you want to reach a greater understanding of the Old Testament.

The OT Still speaks to People Today!
5 stars By Deano, Dec 23 2008
'Them, Us & Me' is a refreshing book on the Old Testament. Jacqui Grey presents the message of the Old Testament as one continuous story emphasizing the unity of Bible. The story she tells is that of the 'people of God.' Beginning with the ancient Israelites, she sets out the relevance of the texts to 'them,' then continues the relevance of the story for 'us' (the Christian Community), and finally shows how this story is still very important to 'me.'
This easy to read book is a great introduction to the Old Testament. It contains small elements of humour, with a reference to 'The Sound of Music' (don't blink of you will miss it).
'Them, Us & Me' equips the reader with the tools to continually enjoy the story of the people of God. Whether you're well acquainted with the Old Testament or a first time reader this book with inspire you to join the story. The Old Testament still 'speaks to people today!'
