Do you read book introductions? I do. I knew from those words that this book would have a powerful impact on my life and becoming more like Jesus.
Have you ever encountered a book that sings unparalleled truth and understanding into your soul? Yes, sings. Beautiful, harmonic sounds of God’s voice impacting my thoughts.
For most of my life I have known that the Old and New Testament complement one another. Some may want to think that the Old Testament books no longer apply to “modern” life, that it’s boring, outdated, and no longer relevant. Not so! Jesus said, “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.” (Matthew 5:17-18)
Hugh Taylor, (a religious Jew, by the way), in 10 Questions, writes words of truth that help the modern Believer understand the laws and precepts set down in the first five books of the Bible. You will find this book insightful and life-changing. Not only if you know Jesus words in the Gospels and what He was teaching us through them but if you’re just starting your Christian walk. It all works together!

I highly recommend reading and applying this book. I will be doing that by writing many of the insights in my journaling Bible so that they are available when I am reading, studying, and worshipping.
What a blessing!
