Called by God by Alan Robinson
Book DescriptionTells of the life and work of thirty characters in the Bible who were convinced that they had received a divine calling. The author, a well-known poet and former lecturer in Religious Studies, has set these stories in a modern verse style, and in accessible language. The text brings out, in a poetic and highly readable way, the personal thoughts and tribulations of the characters as they seek to fulfil God's command and to follow the path of their vocation. While the text follows the Old Testament and Jewish biblical narratives, it adds dimensions of poetic licence to bring out the characterization of the personalities and their stories in a way that highlights their conviction that God supports them in all their activities. Essentially, the text is a celebration of the imaginative powers and insight of these characters, achieved through a structured, rhythmical, poetic verse form. The book is an ideal introduction to the OT stories, and can be used for teaching purposes prior to reading the Bible proper, or as verse prose in their own right.
