Deeper into the Word: Old Testament Devotional
Full Product Description
Translators have done their best to render the words of the Bible into English, but capturing the nuances of the ancient languages is an inexact science. Kent gives readers an opportunity to investigate the roots and biblical context of the words within the Word. Deeper into the Word: Old Testament is a fascinating devotional, but it can also be used as an accessible reference tool, as it explores 100 of the most important words of the Old Testament. Kent unpacks each word's Hebrew origins, shows how it is used in the Bible, and offers insights into its significance in our lives.

Deeper Into the WordMelanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
This is an excellent book. Taking just 100 Old Testament words from Alien to Wisdom it carefully and intelligently tries to re-encapsulate the word in its original meaning but in such a way that we can understand it today. The words chosen are not the deepest theological words or even the most complex or obscure words, though some do fit those categories, instead they are the words that come with contexts attached – or missing! – in the English language or in our modern understanding. Teasing out the depths of the word and where necessary removing the modern context and understanding of the word to allow the real meaning to shine through, a meaning that just otherwise doesn’t come through in English, and yet all done in a simple, clean and easy to read and understand way.
A real joy of a book to read.
Personally I loved reading it from beginning to end but could see how wonderful it would be to use as a meditation or quiet time aid, taking one word a day for 100 days!
I can also see how it might be a great for a minister or leader as a sermon preparation tool.
