Overview

“Christians love the Bible, but they often do not know what to do with the Old Testament,” writes Westmont College professor Tremper Longman. Further, he points out that it includes many types of writing—history, prophecy, poetry, wisdom and apocalyptic. In this helpful volume he offers different strategies for understanding each of these important types of writing. Jesus made a point to tell his disciples that the whole Old Testament anticipated his coming (see especially Luke 24:25–27, 44–45). And so each session includes a special feature called “Anticipating the New Testament.” Through this you will begin to discover the links between the two testaments and gain a fuller sense of our unfolding salvation history.
