Description

The God Who Saves presents the powerful story, woven throughout the diverse texts of the Old Testament, of a God who is urgently and passionately in love, not just with Israel, but with all of God's creatures, especially the poor and powerless. For the beginning university student, finally, this book is an engaging and accessible encounter with the Old Testament.

This textbook dives into the Old Testament from the perspective of ancient Israel. With captivating and rich content, enhanced by maps, tables, biblical reading assignments, discussion topics, and further research prompts, the conversation within Pemberton's book is deepened in its ability to reach both academic and spiritual concepts. The God Who Saves also provides supporting materials available to instructors, such as multiple quiz and exam questions, course syllabi and schedules, and more.

"Never accommodating himself to trendiness, Pemberton here presses the student to ponder the structures of Israel and the message of Israel's God. Each chapter is accompanied by glossaries of new terms, discussion questions, items to know in order to grasp the chapter, and suggestive elements for further study. I taught a course on this topic for seventeen years, and this is the book I needed most."

"We already knew that Glenn Pemberton was a very fine Scripture scholar; and we knew of his passion for Gospel faith that has been mediated through his own life. Now, in this volume, we get Pemberton, the teacher. The distinctive feature of this work is its great attentiveness to pedagogy that is marked by clarity, honesty, accessibility, a good sense of humor, and a judicious balance between the forest and the trees. Pemberton has in his purview other teachers and their students. I anticipate that this book will be a welcome resource for many classrooms, for many teachers, and for very many students."

Featured Reviews

This book is not your typical introduction to the Old Testament. Rather than focusing on textual and historical/archeological matters, Pemberton deals largely with the theological themes of the Old Testament. Augmented with colorful illustrations, maps and charts, this book is an engaging study for any student of the Bible. The focus of the Bible is a revelation of God, His attributes and character, as well as His acts in history. This book gives a clear view of the God of the Bible, and His love toward His people, Israel, flowing through them eventually to all of the world. Recommended!
