5 Old Testament Books

Genesis I have read and reread countless times as if the patriarchs are my fathers and ancestors and their stories my history and lineage. From 1984 to 1993 I read commentaries on every book of the Bible before entering first year theological study for a BTheol. And I kept reading commentaries. Now in my break between jobs I am reading a monograph on Zechariah, Johannine Theology by Paul Rainbow, Marvin H Pope's 700 page commentary on Song of Songs (wow what a book!) and Patricia Tull's Isaiah 1-39 commentary. When one gets up before 4am one can start to work before 6am after 2 hours of quiet time and one accomplishes much before the clock strikes 9am.
