Book Description

19 Nov 2010 The Straight to the Heart Series
God inspired the Bible for a reason. He wants you to read it and let it change your life. If you are willing to take this challenge seriously, then you will love Phil Moore's devotional commentaries. Their bite-sized chapters are punchy and relevant, yet crammed with fascinating scholarship too. Welcome to a new way of reading the Bible with fresh eyes. Welcome to the Straight to the Heart series. Phil Moore leads a thriving church in Wimbledon, London. He also serves as a Bible teacher and evangelist within the Newfrontiers family of churches. After graduating from Cambridge University, Phil spent time on the mission-field and then in the business world. He has devoted many years to the Hebrew and Greek Scriptures, and he brings them to life in the language of today in the Straight to the Heart series. When Phil is not writing, he likes getting beaten at football by his young children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genesis explained 29 July 2011
Format:Paperback
Genesis the first book of the Bible is perhaps one of the most difficult to understand. Is it largely symbolical or to be read as firm historical fact? What does it mean? Is there a hidden meaning? Is it still relevant to me today?

If you have ever asked any of the questions above, then I would highly recommend `Straight to the Heart of Genesis'. Phil Moore's approach is inviting and contemporary, but most importantly challenging.

The book is divided into two parts:

`Part One: Primeval History' which focuses on the events described in Genesis from Creation to c.2100BC

`Part Two: Patriarchal History' which focuses on the events described in Genesis from c.2100BC to c.1805BC

The two parts are then broken down into a number of smaller chapters, each a couple of pages long. These smaller chapters focus on individual passages of text and discuss its meaning and message. In this way, the entire book of Genesis is broken down into manageable chunks.

The chapters are written in a very conversational manner and as such increase the book's overall accessibility. Each chapter begins with a real life or historical scenario which is linked in some way to the passage of text from Genesis. The middle of the chapter focuses on the meaning of the text and the end links the text to the chosen scenario and concludes with a challenge or inspirational message.

This commentary is certainly not stale. It is relevant, engages its target audience and enables the reader to maintain concentration throughout. It is recommended to anyone studying Genesis or attempting to make sense of the book. Fresh, modern and very accessible, this was a great book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Requested by my daughter-in-law as a gift 21 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is her second book from the 'Straight to the Heart' series. Phil Moore's concise style is challenging to the heart and stirs up one's desire to dig deeper into scripture in order to learn from God's dealings with his people - His Love, His Care, His Justice for each of His children
