Editorial Reviews

Review

"In her delightful style, Lois Tverberg engagingly leads us across cultures to begin to envision a different worldview, a worldview more consistent with the world of most of Scripture. In so doing, she brings alive texts of Scripture from the inside."
-- Craig S. Keener, Professor of Biblical Studies, Asbury Theological Seminary; Co-author of the NIV Cultural Backgrounds Study Bible


"Lois is a superb teacher, using story and gentle humor to great effect. I devoured this fascinating book. Highly recommended!"
-- Lynn Austin, Author of Where We Belong


"Lois Tverberg has written still another classic. For those who want to know what it was like to be one of Jesus' inner circle of disciples and sit down with him to study Scripture, Tverberg's new book is the place to start."
-- David N. Bivin, Founder and Editor of Jerusalem Perspective


"Thanks to the good work of biblical scholars, the historical Jesus of Nazareth is once again situated in his divinely designed Second Temple period Jewish context. The latest from Lois Tverberg is a meaningful contribution to that end. Read this book for a more informed reading of The Book."
-- James C. Whitman, President, Center for Judaic-Christian Studies


"Lois Tverberg is a trustworthy guide whose insightful discoveries provide a delightful appetizer to some of the most exciting passages in the Old Testament. I'm recommending it to everyone I know."
-- Todd Bolen, Professor of Biblical Studies, The Master's University

From the Inside Flap

"The Bible is an Eastern book. We see it through the colored glasses of Western culture. Much is lost. We miss the subtleties of humor andmany of the underlying assumptions.... What lies between the lines, what is felt and not spoken, is of deepest significance."
(From The Crossand the Prodigal, by Kenneth Bailey)


What if you could sit down beside Jesus as he explained the Bible to you? What life-changing insights might emerge?

Vast treasures await us when we read the Scriptures as a native,through the eyes of one of Jesus' first-century Jewish disciples.Combining careful research with engaging prose, Lois Tverberg acts as amaster guide, transporting us across the cultural divide between ourworld and that of the Bible.

As we begin to understand how theBible "thinks," our own thinking will be transformed as well, and wewill be able to approach God and the stories and teaching of Scripturewith fresh insight. By opening our eyes to the way Middle Eastern people would have understood Jesus, Lois Tverberg takes us on a journey thatwill deepen our love of this very Jewish book, enriching our lives inthe process.
