Straight to the Heart - Moses by Phil Moore
A powerful devotional commentary series designed to inform and inspire
God is invisible. That's a problem. It was a problem in ancient Egypt and it's still a problem today. In a world where people tend to worship what they can see and feel and taste and touch, an invisible God is all too easy to ignore. That's why we need Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy to show us God's glorious master plan to be seen through his People.
Straight to the Heart of Moses is one of a series of devotional commentaries, which allow people to get to grips with each book of the Bible one bite at a time. Phil Moore does not cover the whole of each book, but rather focuses on key sections which together form a useful introduction. There will be 25 volumes in all, each containing 60 readings. The short chapters are punchy and relevant, yet crammed with fascinating scholarship.
My Take: This is great commentary on Moses. The chapters are short and sweet but when you are done you have learned alot. This book isn't taken from just one book of the Bible but from the Life of Moses so it takes you through several books. These books can also be used as devotionals. I plan on getting more in the series.
