Book Study: GETTING INVOLVED WITH GOD: Rediscovering the Old Testament by Ellen F. Davis
“The Old Testament is a source of Good News and guidance for our life with God. A key piece of Good News that the Old Testament communicates over and over again is that God is involved with us, deeply and irrevocably so. We hear that message affirmed in many different voices and in shifting moods: in the voices of the psalmists crying out to God in the full range of human emotions, from grief to joy, from uncontained rage to dumfounded gratitude; and also in the voice of God, spoken through poets, storytellers, prophets and teachers. As it turns out, God’s life is as complex as our own – and it is so, precisely because God’s life is bound up inextricably with ours.” (from the Introduction to Getting Involved with God.)
The five topics are:
1. Pain and Praise: The Psalms as Common Prayer
2. The Cost of Love (Genesis and the Song of Songs)
3. The Art of Living Well (Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Job)
4. Habits of the Heart (Proverbs, Exodus, the Psalms and Isaiah) 5. Torah of the Earth (Numbers)
Getting Involved with God is a wonderful book and a perfect companion on your Lenten Journey this year.
for a time of learning, fellowship and exploration.
