In The Heart of the Old Testament, Youngblood demonstrates the thematic unity of the Bible by tracing the development of nine key concepts through the Old Testament and into the New: monotheism, sovereignty, election, covenant, theocracy, law, sacrifice, faith, and redemption.

It would be hard to imagine a better summary of the key themes of the Old Testament than the one found in this book. Dr. Youngblood blends an extraordinary knowledge of the Old Testament with an uncanny ability to express concepts clearly. The chapters are succinct, but filled with helpful background material and theological insight. This book comes from the pen of one America's finest Old Testament scholars.
—Herb Wolf, Wheaton College Graduate School
The nine themes [addressed in The Heart of the Old Testament] are monotheism, sovereignty, election, covenant, theocracy, law, sacrifice, faith, and redemption. Dr. Ron Youngblood has achieved his purpose admirably by laying out before us the heart of the Old Testament in a careful and practical manner. I strongly recommend this book.
