|ABRAHAM, LOVED BY GOD :: 1968 HB|
" This is VOLUME ONE of THE BIBLE IN HISTORY A Contemporary Companion to the Bible. "
" This present series of books is for use as a Companion to the Bible. They are not a substitute for the Bible, for nothing can take the place of the Bible itself. It impresses itself on those who read it seriously in a way that no other book can. Some of the difficulties of reading the Bible have been due to the way in which it has usually been printed. Many of these are overcome in the Jerusalem Bible, a translation into contemporary English which is used in this series. In the Jerusalem Bible, the text is presented by dividing the books into sections, and providing headings and footnotes. "
" The aim of this present series of books is to help people to understand the divine revelation. It presents the Bible in the historical circumstances in which it was developed. The men and women who were so acutely aware of God's active presence in their lives were all people of their times. Their experiences were the same as the experiences of their neighbours and fellow-countrymen. They earned their living by the same skills and trades, and their thoughts were expressed in the language used by everyone around them. To understand how God was revealing himself to these people, we must share their experiences as far as we can, and know what was happening in the world in which they lived. "
This book is in good to very good condition with minor wear.
