Overview

The Gospel According to the Old Testament series illuminates the good news of Christ in Old Testament books. Marked by thoughtful, Christ-focused theology at an accessible level, these two volumes highlight God’s redemptive plan throughout the history of Israel. Zack Eswine presents Ecclesiastes as a relatable and empathy filled presentation that points readers to their Redeemer. Moses’ covenant between God and his people is shown to prepare the way for Jesus’ mediation of the New Covenant in From Bondage to Liberty. Bryan Gregory highlights God’s subtle guidance of His people throughout the book of Esther, contrasting this to Jesus’ overt rescue of His church. Each of these resources are filled with surprising insights that will facilitate engagement with culture and motivate heart change.

The preacher in Ecclesiastes reminds readers that life under the sun does not happen according to neat and tidy rules. This biblical author asks us to see the world around us in all its messiness. He then explores what that reveals about humanity, our world, and our God. Rather than avoiding addressing deep questions of life, he answers with an affirmation of the universality of suffering and implications regarding the finiteness of earthly existence. This commentary explores Ecclesiastes as a meditation that engages people where they are, one that draws them to the God who enters their world and who works their redemption.

A pastorally poetic guide to the endlessly ‘wild and strange wonder called Ecclesiastes’. . . . Be sure to reflect on the weighty questions that Zack provides after each chapter. They offer the reader a timely opportunity to respond to the author’s thoughtful observations of an ultimately hopeful text.

It is difficult to overestimate Moses’ importance to the unfolding of God’s plan of salvation. Moses is arguably the most significant Old Testament figure because of his unique role as mediator of the old covenant. In this sense, Moses is a precursor to Jesus Christ who is the mediator of a new and better covenant. This insightful volume focuses on the redemptive-historical aspects of Moses’ life and ministry as manifested in the books of Exodus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy.

Nowhere does the theme of redemption shine more brightly in the Old Testament than in Exodus. Anthony Selvaggio draws us into the story of Moses in a most personal way. In concise and stirring chapters, he shows us the beauties of the Lord Jesus and teaches us practical lessons about godliness.

—Joel R. Beeke, president, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids

If you have wondered what Scriptures Jesus might have cited when he showed his disciples the things concerning himself ‘beginning with Moses’ (Luke 24:27), Anthony Selvaggio provides a significant part of the answer.

Inconspicuous Providence: The Gospel according to Esther

The book of Esther often seems like an anomaly. This book of the Bible never overtly mentions God or his direct intervention. However, Esther’s story feels closest to many Christians’ own experience. Few have experienced a dramatic divine intervention. Our world today seems just as secular as Esther’s did then. Moderns are tempted to ask of her world and our own—where is God in all this? If he is real, why doesn’t he show himself?

Bryan Gregory reveals to his readers how Esther’s literary techniques depict God’s “absent presence” and “hidden involvement.” These subtle devices remind readers that while God appears uninvolved, he is at work behind the scenes to accomplish his purposes and to deliver his people—ultimately making himself clearly known in Christ.

It is a blessing when scholarly research results in deep insights for practical, everyday faith. Here you will find real, concrete hope in Christ that calls you to faith and action and that speaks even to despair and life’s darkest moments.

—Elizabeth Groves, lecturer in Old Testament, Westminster Theological Seminary

Bryan R. Gregory is senior pastor of Brookdale Presbyterian Church in St. Joseph, Missouri.
