Review:
Based around a series of radio talks given by Magonet, these short studies are an insightful and refreshing look at the first five books of the Bible - the books of Moses, the Torah. The presentation is down to earth, and at once uncovers the passages for their truths today and also opens up the Bible in a new way for many Christians by reflecting these passages back through the eyes of Jewish understanding, something we frequently manage to overlook with our theology. This makes for a wonderful book that is not only easy to read, but is also a delight to read. It is certainly a book, I think, anyone looking to do a study of the early part of the Bible would do well to read. It would also be an excellent daily studytime companion, as well as being a great tool for preachers looking for some new insights. I heartily recommend this book.
