This month, my friends, I want to recommend YHWH by G.P. Taylor and Paula K. Parker. In this fairly short book the writers retell the Old Testament stories in a modern and accessible manner.
I found that reading YHWH really helped me to get a grasp of the long thread which runs all the way through the Old Testament. i.e. The people of Israel’s journey with God.
