Product Description

The Old Testament is not a mysterious, outdated book. It is God's biography, the story of his passionate encounters with his people, and the prequel to the story of Jesus. It is also the Bible that Jesus read, used, and loved. In his characteristically candid style, Philip Yancey probes seven carefully selected books--Job, Deuteronomy, Psalms, Ecclesiastes, and the Prophets--and reveals how the Old Testament deals in astonishing depth and detail with the same questions we face today.

    I am currently half way through this book and find it enticing me to reread the first five books of the OT again.

    I actually loved this book and have been telling one of my friends about it - so I am getting one for her (& I can think of a few more people who could perhaps use one). This book is one of my favorites along with - "What is so Amazing about Grace." Particularly, Philip Yancey's explanation of Deuteronomy, and of the so-called "cursing Psalms" and his reminder of why - according to God's Word and the Bible that Jesus read - I, (coming just as I am, often broken, wild, crazy, unlovable) STILL matter and have ALWAYS mattered to God, have been an enormous comfort to me . I can re-read parts of the Bible I never understood or had previously skipped over, knowing that even then - He knew and thought about me. That matters.

    Some interesting info, but not Yancey's best

    This was a bold subject for the author to tackle. And, to be perfectly honest, I probably had unrealistic expectations when I began to read it. For the most part, it is a collection of thoughts about a few Old Testament books with some of Philip Yancey's own unique insights, which are always worth reading. But, the book falls short of being a handy reference tool (since the chapters are really like overviews of the Bible books). At the same time, the book doesn't really present enough of a context for us to grasp the value placed on the Old Testament by the Jews in Jesus' time - or how the Old Testament books may have shown their influence in Jesus' teachings (which is what my expectation of the book was when I bought it at the bookstore).
    There were a few high points. The chapter on Deuteronomy was creative - written almost like a fictional narrative in the third person. And, as I mentioned before, Yancey offers his unique insights and wisdom in his characteristically conversational and personal manner. Not a bad book, just not my favorite by Philip Yancey.
