A GOOD OLD TESTAMENT SURVEY

If you are interested to study the Old Testament in more depth and you are not sure what Old Testament Survey to look at, you may want to take a look at the following book (Encountering the Old Testament: A Christian Survey ) by Arnold and Beyer.

This book usually costs about $50.00 and is now on sale at CBD for only $14.99 (see the link above).

The survey is clearly written with an evangelical perspective and has many great pictures, charts and insights. It is fairly easy to read and understand.

See a few reviews of the book here.

P.S. It seems that the low price is due to the fact that a new edition has been issued. Of course – that is more expensive.

For Your Christian Teenager

If you are Christian (and even if you are not) and you have a teenage child, you may want to take a look at the following book by Alex Harris: Do Hard Things: A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations .

CODEX SINAITICUS ONLINE

Here is a bit of news of interest to Bible students.  I just pick it up from Yahoo.  I am especially interested in seeing the Old Testament portions.

No further comments because I am in vacation and I do not have the time 🙂 

BERLIN (Reuters) – More than 1,600 years after it was written in Greek, one of the oldest copies of the Bible will become globally accessible online for the first time this week.

From Thursday, sections of the Codex Sinaiticus, which contains the oldest complete New Testament, will be available on the Internet, said the University of Leipzig, one of the four curators of the ancient text worldwide.

High resolution images of the Gospel of Mark, several Old Testament books, and notes on the work made over centuries will appear on www.codex-sinaiticus.net as a first step towards publishing the entire manuscript online by next July.

Blessings to all,

Cristian


Back to Canada

Even though I am currently in Phoenix (AZ) and I have been back from Canada for about three weeks, I will write some of my impressions from being back after about 4 years.
