How can something written so long ago really speak to life today and today's faith journey? In Immersion: Deuteronomy author Jack Keller answers that question by discussing how different interpretations have emerged in different times and through the use of different translations. During this six-week study, as a contemporary reader, individuals are freed to explore the interpretation appropriate for our time, while appreciating the various meanings that can be assigned to a verse. Easy to follow, step-by-step suggestions for leading a group are provided as well as questions to facilitate class discussion. This volume is part of the Immersion Bible Studies series. Inspired by a fresh translation, the Common English Bible (CEB), Immersion stands firmly on Scripture and helps readers explore the emotional, spiritual, and intellectual needs of their personal faith. Whether they are using the CEB or another translation, Immersion will offer new insights into God's Word, their own lives, and their life with God.
