Ayuba Mshelia, PhD’s newly released “The Books of the Old Testament in Your Palm” is a helpful resource for students of the Bible.

“The Books of the Old Testament in Your Palm: Brief Introductions to the Books of the Old Testament” from Christian Faith Publishing author Ayuba Mshelia, PhD is an informative and detailed study of the Old Testament that offers a clear breakdown of each key component.

“The Books of the Old Testament in Your Palm: Brief Introductions to the Books of the Old Testament”: an engaging opportunity to deepen one’s understanding of the Old Testament. “The Books of the Old Testament in Your Palm: Brief Introductions to the Books of the Old Testament” is the creation of published author Ayuba Mshelia, PhD, who was born in Garkida, a village where the first Church of Brethren pioneers settled in the northeastern part of Northern Nigeria. Dr. Mshelia attended Ahmadu Bello University from 1971–1974, served in the National Youth Service for one year, and joined the university as a faculty member. He attended the University of Chicago for his master’s degree from 1976–1977. In 1980, he enrolled in Teachers’ College, Columbia University, New York, for his PhD and graduated in 1985. Dr. Mshelia worked in the New York City’s Board of Education, as well as the City University of New York (CUNY) from 1987–2020 when he retired as a professor.

Dr. Mshelia shares, “The book is about introductions to the books of the Old Testament of the Bible, which is a compendium of God’s divine Message to mankind that is uniquely written by forty divinely select people as His spokesmen. How many of these forty select men wrote the Tanakh or the Old Testament?

“This synopsis is a guide to the types of questions asked in writing this book. Who, for example, is the author of the Torah or the Pentateuch? Are all the books written by one person? Or are there others? What are the themes and purposes of each book? Does the difference in the arrangement and number of books between the original Hebrew Tanakh and our Old Testament make any difference to its being canon or faith? What are ‘the books of the kingdoms?’ Why don’t you see such titles in the Old Testament?

“What are the themes of some of the poetical books? For instance, why do good and righteous people suffer and the ungodly prosper? Does God care? How was the first ancient attempt of a holocaust foiled by Hadassah, also known as Esther, a beautiful Jewish orphan who became the queen of King Ahasuerus of Persia? What happened to the culprit? Why was the four-hundred-year period of the judges the most ungodly and apostate in Israel’s history. Why was the Davidic covenant threatened by Bathsheba’s marriage and Absalom’s insurrection?

“What is your take on Daniel’s ‘seventy weeks’ prophecy? (Dan. 9:24). What does the phrase ‘seven weeks, and threescores and two weeks’ mean to you as used in Daniel’s prophecy? What about ‘A time, times, and a half’ (Dan. 12:7) appearing in Daniel’s prophecy? What does Ezekiel’s vision about the ‘valley of the dry bones’ coming to life mean to Israel and to you as a believer?

“The Old Testament begins with the story of creation and life but ends in Malachi (4:6) with a divine threat of a curse. Are you free from that curse as an individual or still under it?

“These are the many compelling and poignant questions laboriously dealt with in the book.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Ayuba Mshelia, PhD’s new book presents an articulate study of the Old Testament that will clarify on key questions that many students of the Bible have faced.
