Jody’s Christmas List #4

Who’s Afraid of the Old Testament God by Dr. Alden Thompson. Retail: $14.99. On Sale: $10.49. (available in ebook also) 200 pp with space for notes. An excellent gift whether the recipient is a teenager or your grandmother or a teacher of a small group Bible study.

Energion Publications released Who’s Afraid of the Old Testament God in 2011. Time passes much too quickly! But though the years have passed the effect this book had on my life is still just as profound. I went from reading the New Testament almost exclusively to reading through the Bible and seeing how Jesus was with us from the beginning.

Chapter titles include “Strange people need strange laws,” “Could you invite a Canaanite home to lunch?” “The worst story in the Old Testament – Judges 19-21,” and “The best story in the Old Testament – the Messiah.”
