Christian Faith in the Old Testament puts the whole Bible together in a way that both young believers and theologians alike will appreciate. No matter what your denominational or theological persuasion, this book presents the building blocks of the Christian faith with devotional depths of insight that any thirsty believer will enjoy.
This book will not only give you the immediate sense that the Bible is truly the infallible Word of God, but that God is now at work in people's lives through Jesus, who is in Himself the fulfillment of the Old Testament Scriptures (Luke 24:25-27).
This book reminds me of a verse in Isaiah: "Remember the former things of old, for I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is no one like Me" (Isaiah 46:9).
What an astounding God!
If you want to know the Bible, and if you want to know the God of the Bible, read this book. Then pass it on to someone else!
Jimmy ReaganWest Union, OHAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Great book!March 7, 2014Jimmy ReaganWest Union, OHAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5When the Apostles turned to their Bible, what was it for them? In clear, accessible style, Gareth Lee Cockerill shows us that it is what we call the Old Testament. More than that, he rescues the Old Testament from the oblivion that some would banish it to. He discusses it with gusto because he believes it is critical for Christians today. Unlike many scholars, he follows what the New Testament told Christians to do with the Old Testament-1 Corinthians 10:11 "Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come."-that is, mine its pages for great spiritual treasure! Thank you Mr. Cockerill.
This book succeeds on every level. It accomplishes its goal of reigniting passion for the Old Testament. In reading it you get a good overview or even an Old Testament survey. Even better, you get it without the dryness that some scholars are ever handicapped to write with. As a substantial bonus, and what separates this book from many competitors, there is real application for the Bible student or pastor scattered all along the way. The Charts added real value as well. They actually taught something. I was particularly blessed as seeing the parts and the whole in a better way.
The Appendix on "Why are these books in our Old Testament?" was exceptional. With all the critical questions on the Canon being thrown around today, I can hardly think of a more succinct presentation. He lands where many of us believe. In a small compass you really got the help you need.
I enjoyed reading this volume straight through, now it will find its way onto my shelves for reference when I begin study of a new book. Such books have always proven a great boon to me.
I read this book thinking I wish more scholars wrote this way. On every page I felt that Mr. Cockerill believes- he really believes! That is more of a problem in the scholarly world than some realize. I know he is a respected scholar because he has recently released a major commentary on Hebrews (that makes sense) in the prestigious NICNT series. I want to get that book now too.
A+ all the way here. I recommend it for Bible teachers and pastors, but studious layman can handle it too. Master this volume's contents and a better Bible understanding you will have.

The Bible of the Apostles
By Gareth Lee Cockerill
We sometimes think or have been told that we do not have to be concerned about the Old Testament; this book will change that way of thinking. Gareth Lee Cockerill gives new insight to the Old Testament and how it applies to life today. He explains how it points to salvation through Jesus Christ and gives a new understanding to the things that took place in the Old Testament. Gareth includes Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and the Prophets for a complete coverage of the Old Testament. He uses charts and diagrams to help you understand the things that took place throughout the old testaments. In the last chapter, he brings the New Testament and Old Testament together in the way the Bible is intended. Discover the source of the apostolic truth of the Old Testament and why the old testament is just as important as the New Testament.
God has great plans for our lives and wants us to understand his plan. We need to understand His word to get this understanding and I feel this book will help. Remember God's word is the whole Bible not just parts.
I found the book thought provoking and inspirational. The book is easy to read and understand, I recommend it for all who desire a better understanding of God's word.
