Product Description

When we think of a detective story, we often think of murder mysteries. But the Bible contains some different kinds of detective stories. How is it, for instance, that some of the key personalities in the Bible story slip into the story almost unnoticed—like Judah, for example, an ancestor of King David and Jesus Christ. How did the symbolism of blood in Communion get started? When Cain was warned that the ground would no longer yield for him because he had killed his brother—did that set a precedent for connecting moral behavior with environmental harshness? These themes and many others are investigated in this study, accompanied by a discussion guide.

Too convaluted to be a good study

By

The stories are not well written and are too complicated to be easily understood. I was using it for a study in an older adult Sunday School class and they lost interest.

Look at Bible stories in a different way.

By

Very interesting and thought provoking, Kalas always teaches in amusing and unusual ways. God's love is the ultimate mystery for us.

Great story teller!!!

This is written as though the author is talking directly to you. The content is clear and the events of the mystery are easily understood. Our whole Sunday School class has really enjoyed both reading it and discussing our concepts of the meaning of his story. Very easy reading and extremely educational.

Challenging thoughts.

This is one of the best books that I have ever read that gives different points of view concerning Bible stores that we all grew up reading I thoroughly enjoyed each story.

Detective Stories from the Bible

By

This book, while well written is not about finding hidden meanings, or even looking for hidden meanings in The Bible. It also does not provide something along the lines of well "this" is written in the OT and "it" correlates with this in the NT. Also, there is very little new, insightful or provocative information. Our group will continue with the book for one or two more weeks and if there is no improvement or change we will not continue with this in our Bible Study class.
