Israel's Story by Dianne Bergant
Book DescriptionThis book explores Old Testament history, theology, and stories, bringing a clear presentation of the God who acts as the people of the covenant, from the creation accounts of Genesis to the fall of the Northern Kingdom and its prophets. "In this first volume, Dianne Bergant takes us on an easy journey through Old Testament history from creation to the time of the eighth century B.C. prophets. Along the way, she highlights the personalities and places God used in revealing the divine plan of salvation. This book provides an excellent panoramic view which puts the pieces together for an introduction to or a recap of the biblical story." - Abbot Jerome Kodell, O.S.B., Subiaco Abbey, Subiaco, Arkansas. "Combining the breadth of her teaching experience and the depth of her knowledge of the Old Testament, Bergant has produced a very helpful and user-friendly introduction. As she reviews the biblical narrative, she gracefully inserts along the way helpful background material of various kinds (e.g., historical, archeological, literary, cultural, theological, and spiritual). For someone beginning to read the Old Testament, this would be a fine book to 'read-along-with.'" - Michael Guinan, Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley, California.
