Discovering Jesus in the Old Testament

Several times the New Testament tells us that the disciples remembered prophesies and/or that the events of Jesus' life and death were foretold. Have you ever wondered just what prophesies they were talking about and what Scriptures spoke of the coming Christ? If you have, this book is for you. The One Year Book of Discovering Jesus in the Old Testament by Nancy Guthrie takes you through the Old Testament, showing you how God's plan unfolded. This book can be started on January 1 or you can pick it up on any other day of the year. There is a Scripture Index to help you cross reference your regular Bible reading or just to find a specific portion of Scripture. These features make the book an easy tool as well as a devotional.

I have found this book to be a great enrichment to my quiet time. It is wonderful to watch the purpose of God unfold through the history of His peoples. My understanding and appreciation of Scripture is increasing every time I use this book. It would make a great tool for someone who wanted to learn how the events of the Old Testament lead to Christ but feels intimidated by some of the larger apologetic books. It is approachable, useful, informative, and enlightening.

The One Year Book of Discovering Jesus in the Old Testament is written by Nancy Guthrie and published by Tyndale Publishing. Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
