By Keri Wyatt Kent
Following the blueprint of the New Testament volume previously released, these two-page chapters provide background information on various words used in the Old Testament. By probing the Hebrew word or words that English word represents, along with the historical and cultural context, Keri Kent gives insight into the meaning of the Scripture text.
Kent is a layperson writing for laypersons. She does not intend for readers to uncover deep or theological meanings, but rather to gain introductions that will encourage them to probe deeper into the study of God’s Word. Although 100 Words can be used as devotional reading, it is intended to be used alongside the Bible and as a reference or basis for further study with the use of a concordance, Bible dictionary and/or commentary.
