Learning to Love the Old Testament

The Old Testament is weighty and difficult. I think the Bible pretty accurately portrays people in all their messiness and awfulness. I have my own issues with this book of scripture. Reading it challenges me all the time, often in ways that make me angry and frustrated. When I studied at BYU many, many years ago, I took a literature class called, "The Bible as Literature". This sounds really funny, but it helped appreciate the Bible in an entirely different way. It is time to revisit the Old Testament. I'll be trying to read and post about my thoughts and questions as I read and study. Hopefully, it will go well.
