The first volume of the great historical narratives of the Old Testament begins with the story of Moses and follows the Israelites through the reign of King Saul. These early chapters of the Bible are primarily about mystery- the call or compulsion or attraction that invites people to seek, and find, God. This fascinating volume explores these mysteries of the Old Testament, shedding light on their relevance to today's world.
