Fresh Water from Old Wells: A New Look at Biblical Stories that May Have Confused You

John Hay Nichols

With masterful storytelling and lighthearted humor, Unitarian Universalist minister Rev. John Nichols presents familiar Bible stories in a new, unexpected light. From Adam and Eve to Jesus' final days, each reinterpreted story creates thought-provoking insights, opens a world of questions, and even suggests some answers. Entertaining as well as intriguing, the stories are written to be enjoyed without the seriousness of being preached at that has driven many away from church. Each chapter is one of Rev. Nichols' most requested, popular sermons over his decades-long career in ministry. Fresh Water from Old Wells delivers a refreshing angle of vision to those old, familiar stories from the Jewish and Christian scriptures. Rev. Nichols' fresh approach to familiar stories puts some serious questions and ideas forward, helping us to connect with the deepest sources of our spiritual lives.
