Overview

The Double Truths of ScriptureIn the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: surely God has appointed the one as well as the other. And#8212;Ecclesiastes 7:14In All the 2s of the Bible, scholar Herbert Lockyer conducts a fascinating study of the ways in which the writers of Scripture combined both contradictory and complimentary concepts in communicating biblical truth, often in the same verse. Too often, one of these double truths is dealt with to the exclusion of the other. But both sides deserve equal attention if we are to understand the truths contained in God's Word in concepts such as...The lion and the lambLife and deathLoss and gainLight and darknessTriumphs and tearsBeauty for ashesLosing and findingGrace and truthPeace and swordsIsrael and the churchAs Lockyer states, "As we are to prove in the examples of the twin truths we have chosen, often when found lying together in the bed of one verse, the one truth warms and supports the other; if the one seems to fall in our understanding, the other is there to lift it up and help it." All the 2s of the Bible is a great resource for pastors, youth and group leaders, Sunday school instructors, or any believer who desires to delve deeper into God's Word.

Meet the Author

When Dr. Herbert Lockyer (1886And#8211;1984) was first deciding on a career, he considered becoming an actor. Tall and well-spoken, he seemed a natural for the theater. But the Lord had something better in mind. Instead of the stage, God called Herbert to the pulpit, where as a pastor, Bible teacher, and author of more than fifty books, he touched the hearts and lives of millions of people.Dr. Lockyer held pastorates in Scotland and England for twenty-five years. As pastor of Leeds Road Baptist Church in Bradford, England, he became a leader in the Keswick Higher Life Movement, which emphasized the significance of living in the fullness of the Holy Spirit. This led to an invitation to speak at the Moody Bible Institute's fiftieth anniversary in 1936. His warm reception at that event led to his ministry in the United States. He received honorary degrees from both the Northwestern Evangelical Seminary and the International Academy in London. In 1955, he returned to England, where he lived for many years. He then returned to the United States, where he spent the final years of his life in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with his son, the Rev. Herbert Lockyer Jr., a Presbyterian minister who became his editor.
