Opening the Bible: Essays by Howard H. Charles

In this collection of fifty essays, Howard Charles brings his gifts as a scholar, teacher, and expositor of the Bible to a variety of themes arising from the scriptures as a whole and from the Old and New Testaments. Originally written as lesson helps for teachers of adult Sunday school classes, these essays will inform, inspire, and give insight to anyone seeking a better understanding of the form and content of the Bible. From the creation story in Genesis to the prophetic concern for justice, from the parables of Jesus to his crucifixion, from the Gospel of Luke to the book of Revelation, Charles opens the Bible in clear, simple language.
