Indulge yourself for a minute ...

You have been offered the once-in-a-lifetime chance to travel in a time machine. Amazingly, you are about to tunnel through the centuries. Where or what will you visit?

It's an exciting concept. And for many Christians, the destination will most certainly be one which informs and aids their faith.

Chris Sinkinson is inviting us to bring our Bibles and imaginations on our trip into the fourth dimension. 'The people of the ancient world travelled into the future - we still hear their words today,' he enthuses. 'And the people of the present have a key to travel back into the past - we can re-imagine it through their surviving written records.'

We supplement the guides of Bible and imagination with other guides: language, geography and historical context, for example. 'I want to make use of any and every helpful guide to unlock the meaning,' explains the author.

It won't always be an easy trip, and it certainly won't be a passive one, but we guarantee that the Old Testament will come alive in a new way, as we are transported far beyond the living room or park bench where we are sitting.

Review:

In an easy style, Chris Sinkinson shows how the books of the Old Testament are realistic and relevant for today. Without avoiding difficulties, he demonstrates how modern archaeological discoveries aid understanding of the Bible. --Alan Millard, Emeritus Rankin Professor of Hebrew and Ancient Semitic Languages, The University of Liverpool

We live in a day when Bible knowledge cannot be assumed. In general, children are largely untaught the Bible, and those who come to faith in their teens or later (as so many do) have a major task on their hands. For such, Dr Sinkinson's book will shine as a bright beacon. When I say that he skips his merry way through a remarkably full summary of Old Testament life, thought, history and context, I do not imply superficiality but call attention to an enviable lightness of touch and style in a book that nourishes heart and head alike.' --Alec Motyer, author and Bible expositor

I've suffered from some travel guides over the years. They know too much and bore you by going on and on. But Chris Sinkinson proves a wonderful guide to the long-ago world of the Old Testament: sure-footed, interesting, and dispensing up-to-date knowledge with a light and humorous touch. He's aware of just how much we need to know to make sense of what we read. Under his expert teaching so much that seems difficult is opened up. The book is 'simply wonderful' - and both words are important. --Derek Tidball, former Principal of London School of Theology
