How the Old Testament speaks to people today

When most people pick up their bible and sit down to read it, they want to understand what the book is saying. One of the most dissatisfying experiences of reading the Old Testament is knowing that one has just read something profound and insightful, but the reader just doesn't know how to conceptualise or express what it was! What is the OT, and how can I read it today in a way that is faithful to its context, and yet speaks into my present? This book will tell you how: it is a 'hermeneutics of the Old Testament' for the rest of us.

This book offers a fresh approach to helping you read and understand the Old Testament. The first section gives you some simple keys to discover the Old Testament. It teaches you about the cultural world of ancient Israel. Yet it does not end there – it helps you to see how Jesus Christ fulfils the Old Testament and how it can be applied to your life. Armed with this strategy for reading, this book then outlines what the Old Testament is about. This second section presents an inspiring overview of the major ideas and events of the Old Testament.
