During forty-three years working with schools and churches across Japan, Whaley came to see life and faith through the lens of the Japanese culture. Here he applies that unique perspective to three key books of the Bible, making for an ideal missions-focused Bible study series.
• Jeremiah contains the magnificent Temple Sermon that has inspired Japanese Christians to become today’s prophets, courageously challenging the secular and religious status quo.
• Job captures the search for meaning and hope experienced by Christian minorities across the world as they struggle with the problems of righteous suffering.
• 1-2 Peter are about a post-apostolic Christianity that holds important lessons for today’s postmodern church.
