GRAPPLING WITH A DIFFIULT VERSE IN THE BIBLE? Does it seem to raise more problems than it solves? Looking for a short, easy-to--read answer that really makes sense without explaining away the verse? Then Hard Sayings of the Bible is the handy reference book you need. Here you will find explanations of over 500 of the most troubling verses faced by Bible readers. Four seasoned scholars, with a heart for communicating with people in the pew, take you behind the scenes to find succinct solutions to a wide variety of Bible difficulties, ranging from discrepancies about numbers to questions about God's justice. Historical, cultural and linguistic backgrounds shed light on these passages, not only helping explain what they meant in biblical times but also showing how they are relevant today. Now carefully cross-referenced with over 100 new verses explained, as well as a dozen new introductory articles, Hard Sayings of the Bible offers the combined resources of five previous volumes that have over 250,000 copies in print. If you find yourself tied up in scriptural knots, here's the book that will cut them.
