Thirty-One Great Chapters of the Old Testament
Author Roger Ellsworth
One way of developing our faith is to delve into the Bible's best-known chapters. This is especially helpful when looking into the Old Testament. Thus, this practical and easy-to-understand book takes us, in just thirty one days, on a whirlwind journey to the Old Testament's mountain tops - and, in doing so, presents the Bible's foundational truths.
Written by an author who knows how to present the truth of God's word simply and effectively, here is a great way to be introduced to the Old Testament - and get a taste for more!
We are all called to great living. What is great living? It is living in which we rise above the small and trivial to achieve the purpose for which God made us. What is that purpose? It is to live in such a way as to bring pleasure and glory to the Creator (Rev. 4:11).
God has graciously given us help in his Word to help us live as we should. It tells us what he expects of us. But the Bible does even more. In a mysterious and wonderful way, it actually imparts strength to us for living. The psalmist David knew about this quality and prayed: 'Strengthen me according to Your word' (Ps.119:28).
Nothing is more important for us, then, than to know our Bibles very well. To focus on some of these chapters, provides increased strength for living.
