In The Garden And Other Stories From The Bible (eBook)
A Different Kind Of Book.
de C. P. Cunningham
Sobre o livro
This is a different kind of book about the Bible. It is a collection of short, thought-provoking stories built around and based on the people in the Bible, and how they might have reacted to some of the incidents and events that are described or implied in Scripture. Each story also attempts to imaginatively explore some question, incident, or inference which piqued my curiosity during my Bible study. Some of these questions are as follows: If God knows everything, and knows the future, He must have known that Eve was the one who first ate of the fruit. Yet after the Fall, He first called for Adam in the Garden. Why? In the story of the rich young ruler in Mark, it is said that Jesus looked on him and loved him. Why? When the Magi appeared to Herod, he asked the experts in the Law to tell him where the Messiah was to be born, and they apparently knew immediately. Yet there is no evidence that any of these experts ever went to Bethlehem. How could they not have gone?In summary, this is a book for people who are curious about the Bible, and the people who are presented within. People who are open to slightly different perspectives. People who want to think deeply, seriously about the Bible and what it says to us today.
