    James Jordan is one of the very best teachers on how to read the Bible He studies the Bible like an English Literature professor studies Shakespeare He digs in and looks for clues for what the text is saying in ways that I ve not seen done by anyone else Primeval Saints is a study of the patriarchs in Genesis.Here is a simple example of what I mean Did you know that the keeper of the prison , where Joseph was held, after being accused of attempted rape, in Genesis 39 40, was Potiphar, the James Jordan is one of the very best teachers on how to read the Bible He studies the Bible like an English Literature professor studies Shakespeare He digs in and looks for clues for what the text is saying in ways that I ve not seen done by anyone else Primeval Saints is a study of the patriarchs in Genesis.Here is a simple example of what I mean Did you know that the keeper of the prison , where Joseph was held, after being accused of attempted rape, in Genesis 39 40, was Potiphar, the very same man who was the man who...

    Jordan doesn t waste any words here That was fine with me most of the time , but it might work against him if he s hoping to make sense to people who haven t read his other stuff or made friends with a few of his key premises premises like, everything in Scripture is a picture of something else, and every picture is connected to at least seven other pictures The book would work well delivered as a series of lectures so that we could get Jordan s Jedi hand wave at the same time These are th Jordan do...

    This is my favorite Jordan book outside of Through New Eyes A great, simple reading of Genesis that draws on biblical themes Sometimes Jordan can be hard to read, but here he is at his best Challenging on several levels and will force you to read Genesis differently.

    This is my favorite by Jim Tons of good pastoral and homiletic material here Lots of typology, bc it is Jim, but I don t recall anything offensively bizarre And I think he s basically right about Jacob.
