A BIBLE STUDY RESOURSE Dr. Stewart takes a bold new approach to Bible Study in his new book BIBLICAL THEMES. While most studies engage in the reinforcing of Christian dogma, Biblical Themes will give the reader a deeper understanding of God's plan for the nation of Israel. You will learn just what Jesus meant and how the Pharisees understood the statement "if these the crowd] should hold their peace these stones would immediately cry out" (Luke 19:40). This was not an off hand, meaningless statement. It was a declaration. In the Old Testament God set stones apart as a witness heap. You will learn the real reason why Abraham was willing to sacrifice Isaac and why God commanded him not to kill his son thereby abolishing human sacrifice. Dr. Stewart has chosen a wide variety of topics, people and places for you to explore thereby enriching your Biblical knowledge. In order to make for a lively Bible Study, a series of questions follow each topic. This is not a resource for the faint of heart as it deals with subject matter clergy prefer to ignore. Dr. Stewart's eye for detail sheds light on God's never-ending love for creation and overwhelming desire to one day reign over a kingdom built on love. As in his first book, The Bible According to Jim, all exegetical work is done in Hebrew and Greek and not a series of English translations. If you want to enjoy a work that will truly engage you then this is the resource for you. You will also be engaged by the questions that follow each topic. Dr. Stewart guarantees they will make for a lively Bible Study.
