For first-time author Edward Holscher, his study manual “The Joy of Old Testament Promises: Repentance and Faith” is a culmination of his life’s work as a dedicated Christian and Bible believer. Through this lens, readers will gain a clear understanding of the Old Testament’s most valuable lessons in a digestible, relatable manner. Mr. Holscher’s insights, gleaned during 48 years of Sunday School classes and adult Bible teaching, provide a solid foundation for study leaders to guide seekers through these often baffling passages of Scripture.
Prior to publishing, and before his passing, Mr. Holscher said: “I am not a trained Bible scholar, but in my decades of observing and absorbing Bible study courses, I noticed that ‘new’ Christians and seasoned believers alike often found the Old Testament confusing and difficult to interpret. My hope is to ease embarrassment for those who may feel lost, and provide a clear path forward to understanding the contents of these valuable 39 books.”
Mr. Holscher was born during the Dust Bowl and Great Depression era to Christian parents in Keith County, Nebraska. He attended high school in Ogallala, Nebraska and went on to the University of Nebraska where he majored in pharmacy. He soon joined one of the largest companies in the world, Parke-Davis, as a pharmaceutical salesman. Originally stationed in Kansas, he traveled to rural counties for his work then eventually moved to Wichita where he met Lois Temple. They married shortly after in 1948, and over the next 65-plus years were both dedicated to their faith, family, and careers.
Rebekah IIliff, Mr. Holscher’s granddaughter, said: “Two weeks before my grandfather joined his wife of nearly seven decades in heaven, we had a lengthy conversation about his legacy project: ‘Repentance and Faith.’ As a professional writer, he entrusted me with the task of making sure the book was edited and published in the event he could not do it himself. As someone who took great pride in independence, I know this was difficult for him. But for me it was a great privilege. I gained insight into his life’s work, his belief system, and his thinking.”
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Mr. Holscher’s new book is a riveting manual that provides remarkable passages from the Holy Bible that will serve as one of the rudimentary tools for their personal growth. It serves as a useful handbook for readers, enabling them to understand the stories and passages written in the thirty-nine books of the Holy Bible.
