We do not know what is in [the Old Testament], and therefore we speculate about the things that we ought to have found in the scriptures themselves. I think that therein is one of our biggest dangers of today.—President Harold B. Lee Of all the standard works, the books of the Old Testament often seem most shrouded in mystery. Unfamiliar vocabulary, cultural references, and symbolism can feel like a daunting prospect for gospel study. So how can members of the Church avoid the spiritual pitfalls of misunderstanding these books of scripture? The answer lies in taking the time to decipher the text, one topic at a time. In 400 Questions & Answers about the Old Testament, renowned BYU religion professor Susan Easton Black addresses a wide range of biblical topics designed to answer an array of common questions related to Old Testament study, such as: The Lord planted a garden eastward in Eden. Where was Eden located? What was manna? Why is the courage of Queen Esther such a big part of the Feast of Purim? This notable collection of doctrinal questions and answers will prove invaluable as readers seek to uncover the gospel gems hidden in the pages of the Old Testament.

These real questions are the burden of this book, which seeks to sequentially address from throughout Scripture six crucial questions that affect a person's relationship to the Spirit: What is blasphemy against the Holy Spirit? How does a person resist him? Ought we to pray to the Spirit? How do we quench the Spirit? How do we grieve the Spirit? and How does he fill us? Each chapter is devoted to one question and challenges readers about their relationship with the Spirit and about Christian living in general. Readers are also given key elements for thinking theologically and implications for their belief and behavior. It's a brief, reader-friendly book full of solid, reassuring answers.
