Excellent Series - well written, intelligent and readable
on 5 April 2013
Having completed reading the New Testament for Everyone by Tom Wright (and before that the wonderful new daily bible study books by William Barclay) I have now moved on to the Old Testament by John Goldingay and have just completed Joshua, Judges and Ruth for Everyone. I am doing this to complement my separate daily reading of the bible itself. I have found the series excellent. Godlingay normally relates a story drawn from his own life and experience to develop the point found in the daily reading so it is a bit like listening to a good sermon. While I am well read in terms of christian reading I am not a theologian and find the level it is pitched at just right for me. Perhaps as another reviewer has said, it is not sufficiently in depth for a serious theology scholar but for anyone like me who wants a well written, intelligent and readable explanation of the Old Testament books I can happily recommend these.
