"Deeper into the Word: Old Testament" digs deeper into the meaning of some Hebrew words used in the Old Testament. I've done a lot of word studies on Hebrew words, and it's possible that's why I wasn't as impressed with this book as I was with "Deeper into the Word: New Testament." However, my impression was that this book contained less information that gave insight to the text--insight that would make me think, "oh, now I understand that teaching so much better!"

The book listed 100 common English words found in the Old Testament and listed them alphabetically. Under each English word, the author explained which Hebrews words could be translated as that English word. She explained the nuances of each word and then gave examples of where it's used in Scripture.

Usually the word in question was indicated by putting the Hebrew word beside it: for example, "...fertile field (karmel)..." But other times it wasn't indicated, and it wasn't always obvious which word was being pointed out. And some of the information was in error. For example, on page 147, we're given "God (Shaddai) Almighty (el)" in a quote, but it ought to read "...God (el) Almighty (Shaddai)..."

I was surprised by the amount of modern commentary and human speculation that was included. The entry on Sheol, for example, seemed heavily influenced by sources outside the Bible. The author didn't mention that Sheol is clearly described in the Bible as a place where people can't hope or praise (Isa 38:17, 18) and have no activity or planning or knowledge or wisdom (Ecc. 9:10). She did point out that Sheol usually refers to "death" or "the grave," yet she suggested that Sheol was a limbo-like place where people can go even while alive and where people are physically weak. Looking at the verses she referred to in full context, in several different translations, and with a few key Hebrew words studied further, the main verses she used appear to simply point out that God killed some disobedient people by burying them alive (Numbers 16) and that every person, no matter how mighty in life, is equally powerless in death (Isaiah 14). Since I ended up double-checking several entries, I decided the book wasn't much use to me as a reference tool.

Once again, Keri Wyatt Kent has taken her journalistic, readable approach and put it to great use. In "Deeper into the Word," Kent manages to pack spiritual insight and theology into short essays on 100 words from the Old Testament. Not only will "Deeper into the Word: enrich your personal understanding of scripture, but it will also provide you a great tool for small groups, teaching and bible study for all ages. This is a book you will return to again and again. Kent has also written a companion volume for the New Testament, and both are well worth the investment!

I got it for free, so it wasn't a waste of money. Not sure what to say about it fully. It was a little boring.

As the year's odometer is about to roll over (hello, 2012!), you might be considering a new devotional. I've used a variety of devotional books over the years, and have even contributed to a couple. Most follow a pretty standard format: a Bible verse or inspirational thought, a short meditation on the passage, a prayer. The best devotional tools serve their intended purpose of nudging readers Godward.

If you're interested in devotional material that nudges you a little farther and goes a couple of steps beyond the usual, you might be interested in Deeper Into The Word - Old Testament: Reflections On 100 Words From The Old Testament (Bethany House, 2011). (There is also a New Testament version.)

Author Keri Wyatt Kent offers a brief but meaty exploration of 100 Old Testament words like barren, blessing, dust, feast, jubilee, manna, rod, veil and wine. This is not a dry academic book, but a wonderful tool for someone looking for a portable soul food feast. There is solid information about the meaning of each word and the way it is used in Scripture blended with a heaping measure of reflection. These words aren't meant to stay on the pages of our Bible, but become a part of our lives. She notes

"Ironically, although the Bible is more available to American Christians at this time than any other in history, biblical literacy in the Western World is at an all-time low. If Christians read the Bible at all, they often skip the first two-thirds of it, missing out on the bond that comes from reading the same book Jesus read, loved, and memorized when he walked the earth. Ignoring the Old Testament comprises our intimacy with Jesus."

Deeper Into The Word can also serve as a helpful Bible study tool for those interested in growing their understanding of the meaning of the words they read in Scripture. I believe the pair of books (Old Testament and New Testament) would be a worthwhile addition to the libraries of Bible study and small group leaders. Recommended.

*I received a complimentary, "no strings attached" copy of this book from the publisher. The opinion is mine.
