"The title, Old Testament, creates difficulties of its own. If it is "Old" and we are people of the "New", surely we may properly let it fade away into history? Besides, it seems very unlike the New Testament, even contradictory: all those wars when Jesus is the Prince of peace; all those commandments to obey when we are not under law but under grace. And can the God of the Old Testament be a God of love like the Father, Son and Holy Spirit?"
These are the questions that Alec Motyer, a life long lover of the Old Testament, seeks to answer starting with the conviction that Jesus is the fulfilment of the Old Testament Scripture. This is for the Christian who wants to know what the Old Testament has to do with the New Testament and why the Christian should read it.
A comprehensive survey of the Old Testament organised around its authors and major characters, the theme of this book is that the Holy Spirit chose, fashioned and equipped the biblical authors to convey distinctive truths through each of them.'
"This is a masterful panorama of the old testament. Helpful thumbnails of each book, illuminating engagement with the text, perceptive connections with our own day and faith combine to make this a superb overview of the old testament. The arrangement of material along the timeline of history is immensely useful and at a stroke clarifies how the old testament flows toward the new; but the real genius of the book is that it begins with that destination: with Christ, whose Scripture it was. Seasoned preachers and inquiring beginners alike will gain from every page. Read it : it's brilliant!"
"This is vintage Motyer; it is affectionate--the writer's sheer delight in 'the law of the Lord' tends to ooze out from behind the print; it is fresh--he's familiar with the scholarly waterfront but Jacob-like has wrestled and stewed over these texts himself (and his struggle is our gain); it is devious, for Alec clearly wants to hook you on the Old Testament! Huge kudos to 'Focus' for this format."
