It is common for people to say that the  Bible is distant and removed from our own time. The God portrayed within it’s pages can seem harsh and cold. And many modern readers feel there is little we can learn from the people and places depicted in it’s pages.

However, this blog seeks to bring the pages of the Old Testament to life by means of creative writing, academia, and current events. It is my hope that in uncovering the culture of the past, we can better understand our own walk of faith.

Although these posts will strive to connect to matters of Christian spirituality, anyone who seeks to understand the world and culture of the Ancient Near East can learn and uncover some of there own questions within these posts.
