Deuteronomy Via ZOOM

It was a privilege to teach the book of Deuteronomy to the adult class at Laurelwood Baptist Church in Vancouver, Washington. The book of Deuteronomy is a wonderful study of God’s love for His people and their responsibility to love and obey Him in return. Someone has said that there is more about the love of God in Deuteronomy than the Gospel of John! Because of the COVID-19 virus, I had to teach the last three lessons on with ZOOM technology.

Looking for a Good Read?

If you are looking for a spiritually uplifting book while you are stuck at home because of the COVID-19 virus, you may want to consider my new book, “The Story of Jesus: Past, Present and Future.” Most books on the life of Jesus begin with His birth. This book begins with a flash back to the past to see what Jesus was doing before He was born in Bethlehem. After looking at ten key Old Testament texts, we turn to the Gospels to tell the story of Jesus life on earth. This is followed by an encouraging study of what Jesus is doing now for us in heaven. The forth section of the book presents what Jesus will do in the future according to biblical prophecy.

Presenting my new book, “The Story of Jesus.”

The book is available on Amazon for $9.95 in paperback or $4.95 as a Kindle edition. And if you purchase the paperback, you can have the Kindle edition for just 99 cents.

And don’t forget about my other recent publication, “The Story of Israel: A short history of the land and its people.” Dr. Todd Miles, my friend an colleague at Western Seminary wrote, “Students of long-time Western Seminary biblical studies professor Carl Laney will recognize the love for the Bible and the love for the setting of (most of) the Bible that permeates every page of Laney’s latest book. The Story of Israel summarizes Carl’s teachings on the plotline of the Bible as well as providing helpful historical and cultural insights that bring clarification to the proper interpretation of the biblical text. Laney takes you from Genesis 1 through first and second Temple Judaism into the modern era. Those interested in studying the Bible will find this a very helpful resource for understanding the big picture and many of its details.” Thanks, Todd, for these kind words!

The Story of Israel is available on for $8.95. The book is also available in Kindle edition for $4.95. If you purchase the paperback book, you can buy the Kindle edition for just $.99. Click on the link below to find my book on Amazon.
