Lamentations: Bible Speaks Today (BST)

Lamentations: Bible Speaks Today (BST)

by Christopher J. H. Wright

The destruction of Jerusalem by the Babylonians in 587 BC is the likely setting for the book of Lamentations.

Ezekiel: Bible Speaks Today (BST)

Ezekiel: Bible Speaks Today (BST)

by Christopher J. H. Wright

Ezekiel comes to us as a stranger from a distant time and land. Who is this priest who, on his thirtieth birthday, has a dazzling vision of God on a wheeled throne?

God I don't Understand, The

God I don't Understand, The

by Christopher J. H. Wright

If we are honest, we have to admit that there are many things we don’t understand about God. We do not have final answers to the deep problems of life, and those who say they do are probably living in some degree of delusion. There are areas of mystery in our Christian faith that lie beyond the keenest scholarship or even the most profound spiritual exerci… Read more…
