Quick Overview:

Images of God and the People of God---a contribution to the Ancient Context, Ancient Faith series---illuminates profound biblical images of God and his relationship with his people. By opening up the cultural world in which such images were created, Timothy Laniak clarifies and amplifies their meaning for God’s people today.

The theme of God’s relationship with his chosen people is expressed and explained in numerous ancient word pictures throughout the pages of Scripture. Without an accurate grasp of the historical and social contexts that originally housed these images, however, modern eyes and ears can gloss over these profound biblical revelations and fail to hear their timeless teaching. Even worse, readers can wrongly understand what such images communicate about God and about the people of God, misusing the Bible by imposing modern assumptions upon it. Timothy S. Laniak provides the necessary background for accurately understanding the Bible’s images of God and of his people, tracing seven image pairs from Genesis and Exodus through their climax in Revelation. This complementary approach reveals a rich and multifaceted relationship between God and the people he loves and calls into his service. Finding the Lost Images of God draws on archaeology, ancient texts, anthropology and personal narratives to bring deeper understanding of the Bible’s imagery to students, pastors, lay leaders and other Bible teachers.
