Notice board: Bible study

16 November 2018

DAVID BAKER’s The Decalogue looks at the Commandments within their own historical context in the ancient Near East, moves on to their theological meaning in scripture, before addressing their contemporary significance (Apollos, £12.99; 978-1-78359-550-1).

Tim Chester’s Bible Matters aims at enabling readers “to realise that every time you read the Bible, you’re hearing the voice of God”. He discusses how God may be regarded as speaking in the Bible, and assesses scripture as relational, intentional, sufficient, reliable, and accessible (IVP, £9.99 (£9); 978-1-78359-581-2). Similar topics are covered in his Bible-study guide Hearing God’s Word, which can accompany a reading of the book (IVP, £4.99; 978-0-78359-581-5).

Hebrews provides 30 days’ short daily readings adapted by Elizabeth McQuoid from talks by Charles Price on this epistle at the Keswick Convention (IVP, £4.99 (£4.50); 978-1-78359-611-9). Similar treatment has been applied to Liam Goligher’s talks on Ezekiel (£4.99 (£4.50); 978-1-78359-603-4).

John: An earth Bible commentary looks at the Gospel from the perspective of its ecological resonances. Margaret Daly-Denton hopes that her work will testify to the fact that Jesus as portrayed in the Fourth Gospel is good news for the physical world (T & T Clark, £75 (£67.50); 978-0-567-67451-7).
