Short description: The Old Testament is much loved by readers around the world. Yet many people struggle to understand it. For example, have you enjoyed the stories of the Old Testament but wondered about their relevance? Been baffled by the unusual Laws? Skipped books that seemed far removed from your 21st Century life? If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions, then Them, Us & Me is for you! This book offers a fresh approach to helping you read and understand the Old Testament. The first section gives you some simple keys to discover the Old Testament. It teaches you about the cultural world of ancient Israel. Yet it does not end there--it helps you to see how Jesus Christ fulfills the Old Testament and how it can be applied to your life. Armed with this strategy for reading, this book then outlines what the Old Testament is all about. This second section presents an inspiring overview of the major ideas and events of the Old Testament. This is a practical, common sense book designed to help you gain confidence in reading the Bible. It is for all people who want to better understand the significance of the Old Testament.

Author: Denise A. Austin

Publication year: 2013

APS series number: 5

ISBN: 0987495003

Short description: Since its inception in 1937, Australian Christian Churches (Assemblies of God in Australia) has transformed from a small, fragmented sect, into a substantial denomination with far-reaching impact. This book reveals that its national training institution, Alphacrucis College (formerly Commonwealth Bible College then Southern Cross College), has been integral to the unity, vitality and growth of the movement. The college became a locus of a burgeoning supply of church planters and missionaries, as ‘new’ Pentecostal alumni took the lead in renewal and visionary faith. Building on its solid heritage, while meeting the demand of changing demographics, tighter government compliance and evolving church structures, Alphacrucis College has grown to become one of Australia’s largest and most productive dual sector Christian colleges for higher education and vocational training. Our College will provide inspiration to all those seeking to equip others or to be equipped for the work of Christ on the earth.
