Gregory Mobley
ISBN
9780802837462
Gregory Mobley plunges beneath the Bible's surface to reveal its backstories -- the tales that constitute the backbone of the people Israel and of the body of Christ. Viewing the Bible as essentially, relentlessly story, Mobley provides an easy-to-understand sevenpart thematic overview of the Bible that guides readers through the drama of the Hebrew Bible, highlighting the interconnectedness of biblical stories. Each story is a variation on a single theme -- the dynamic interplay between order and chaos. Intriguing Ancient Near Eastern myths, personal anecdotes, and popular cultural references from movies, musical theater, and writers ranging from Dr. Seuss to William Blake pepper the book throughout. Arresting chapter and section titles such as It's Love That Makes the World Go 'Round and Lord Bezek's Big Toes capture the imagination, and Mobley's own lyrical, energetic writing style -- exercised on vibrant biblical material -- propels the reader forward.
