Brief Description

There are many biblical stories which can be considered spiritual favorites, “greatest hits” even. Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Noah and his ark. Moses and the crossing of the Red Sea. Daniel in the lions den. The Christmas story. Paul on the road to Damascus. This book isn’t about any of these stories.

In the pages of Hidden Treasures, the latest by pastor and author Judson Edwards, we go a bit off the beaten, scriptural path to meet unfamiliar people and visit unusual places. You’ll meet Bezalel, Ahimaaz, and Diotrephes. You’ll make stops in books rarely visited, like Lamentations, Habakkuk, Haggai, and 3rd John. Even if you’ve spent a good part of your life studying the Bible, you’ll probably go places in this book that you’ve seldom been before. As you wander the back roads of the Bible, you’ll be impressed with the people you meet and the sights you see. You might even come to believe that there are truths to be learned on the back roads that can’t be learned anywhere else.

Each chapter is accompanied by a list of questions for reflection and study that will help you draw insights from these stories into your own life.
