The Old Testament remains a closed book for many people. But as respected biblical scholar Mary Deeley amply demonstrates, Christians have much to gain by delving deeper into it-doing so can strengthen our relationship with God, and allow us to grow in personal faith and connectedness to the stories of the Bible.

Mothers, Lovers, Priests, Prophets, and Kings explores the world of the Hebrew Scriptures in ways that will benefit the casual and experienced reader alike. Employing humor and insight, Deeley examines many well-known and not so well-known stories, showing how they contribute to understanding God and ourselves. Get to know Sarah, Abraham, Elijah, Rahab, Ruth, and many more and see how their experiences relate to your life today.

This book offers a deeper appreciation of the nature of Scripture as a Living Word, a greater understanding of the connection between God in the Old Testament and God in the New, and a better awareness of the multifaceted nature of God's interaction with us. A reflection with helpful questions for individual guided meditation and for small group discussion follows each story.
