Summary

Summary

Many of us learned Bible stories as children. When we revisit them later in life, we bring a rich treasure of experience that gives new depth and meaning to familiar stories. In Bible Stories Revisited, biblical educator Macrina Scott encourages individuals and groups to read the Bible through the lens of their own life stories to see how God has been at work in their lives. She includes 24 Old Testament stories and offers a reflection on each Scripture story based on modern scholarship and her insights as religious educator and scholar. Bible Stories Revisited provides extraordinary opportunities for spiritual growth, especially for those who have fulfilled responsibilities to children and careers.

Old Testament stories include:

Abraham

Hagar and Sarah

Abraham and Isaac

Rebekah and the Twins

Joseph

Moses

Naomi

Hannah and Samuel

David

King Solomon

Jeremiah

Judith

Tobit

Job
