Above all, she demonstrates that scripture is a living source of insight that is applicable to any era.
But, of course, the Bible is so nuanced, subtle and deep that there is much to be rediscovered.
The six chapters offer new lessons and understandings that, after reading them, the connections seem obvious, but I have never appreciated them before.
Recommended for anyone who appreciates the insights offered by careful textual analysis of the Bible.
