John Frame. Theology in Three Dimensions.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, September 29th, 2017. 136 pp.

Here’s a question based upon the verse:

One way that has been helpful for me to remember what’s in the 39 books in the Old Testament is thinking of the number 593-5-593.  I first heard this years ago from a teacher name Robert Morey.
