The Complete Old Testament Studies

The Old Testament is full of many remarkable stories that pose a challenge to our modern understanding. In this collection of essays, Rudolf Frieling demonstrates his unique gift for delving more deeply into the meaning of Old Testament stories, presenting them with a fresh perspective that makes them more comprehensible to today’s readers.

In this insightful book Frieling:

  • Explores the accounts of the creation of the human being in Genesis.
  • Demonstrates the ongoing power of the Psalms.
  • Shows how the events of the Old Testament are a preparation for the coming of Christ.

Frieling’s commanding grasp of the original Hebrew and close attention to detail brings the rich imagery of these accounts and songs to life, making these studies a unique guide to the wisdom of the Old Testament.
