Living with the Old Testament
Number of pages: 32
Explore and discover the rich history of the Old Testament and the powerful message that it has for your life today with this brief introduction. Karen Hamilton offers an overview of the creation and development of the Old Testament writings. In doing so, she provides us with a guide to help us understand the meaning of the biblical texts and connect them to our daily lives.
Living with the Old Testament is a wonderful resource for those who desire a greater understanding and appreciation of the Word of God. Like the other booklets of the Living with… series, this brief guide helps us to experience the Word of God as Vatican II says, “the food of the soul and the pure and everlasting source of spiritual life.” (Dei Verbum 21)
The Living with… series is designed to strengthen spiritual practice in the daily life of busy contemporary Catholics. By offering moments for prayer and meditation, along with nuggets of valuable information, each booklet answers the many questions thoughtful Catholics have about living a faith-filled life in today’s relentlessly secular world.
A practical, accessible and comprehensive series covering Catholic traditions and their role in finding grace in everyday life.
