Overview

Reading the Old Testament can seem like exploring an old, mysterious mansion, packed with all sorts of strange rooms. The creation room, vast and sublime. The exodus room, with hardhearted pharaohs and dried-up seas. The war room, with bloody swords and crumbling walls. The tabernacle room, with smoking altars and dark inner sanctums. What does this odd and ancient world have to do with us, who are modern followers of Jesus? As it turns out, everything! Every chapter in the Old Testament, in a variety of ways, tells the story that culminates in Jesus the Messiah. What Christians today call the Old Testament is what Jesus and the earliest believers simply called the Scriptures. That was their Bible. From its pages, they taught about the Messiah’s divine nature, his priestly work, his ministry of salvation. The Christ Key will reintroduce readers to these old books as ever-fresh, ever-new testimonies of Jesus. By the end, you will see even Leviticus as a book of grace and mercy, and you will hear in the Psalms the resounding voice of Christ.

    This is a wonderful and inspiring book to read. I continue to delight in the works of this author. He takes the reader on a journey through Genesis, through Exodus, through the Tabernacle/Temple, and through the Psalms. In this journey, we get to see how it is all about our Lord Jesus the Messiah - and about his death and resurrection. I would’ve appreciated a few more chapters covering the kings, prophets and wisdom literature. In fact, I do hope the author considers a more detailed work that covers every book of the OT! Plus each of the 8 chapters has a good set of discussion questions, making this book ideal for group (and individual) study. The only improvement (besides wanting the book to be longer ;) ) would be a “For Further Reading” section. While I would especially recommend this book to those who are preaching (or thinking of preaching) from the OT, I would recommend it to all :)
