In “Interview with Joab“, 15 scripture-based, “what if/rest-of-the-story” stories offer the reader an opportunity to reflect on and discuss well-known Bible stories in a fresh, thought-provoking way. The brief commentaries and questions following each story are designed for personal and small group study. These biblical “what ifs” demonstrate the relevance of these timeless truths and God’s lessons for contemporary individuals, families, and communities.
